STEM Ambassador Program

WVU STEM Ambassadors act as science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) instructors and camp/cabin counselors during 4-H summer camps and events across the state of West Virginia. Given training and materials, ambassadors travel throughout the state during the summer and deliver pre-arranged STEM curriculum in a variety of settings. Events include county 4-H day or overnight camps, summer youth program sites, state 4-H camps located at Jackson’s Mill in Jane Lew, WV, the West Virginia State Fair located in Lewisburg, WV, and camps on the WVU campuses in Morgantown and Beckley. 

This is a great opportunity for WVU students to earn some extra money this summer, improve their teaching and leadership skills, and camp in beautiful locations in the West Virginia wilderness, all while spreading their enthusiasm for science to children across the state. This will be the seventh year of the program and the more than sixty previous STEM Ambassadors who served in summers 2012-2017 have reported that the program was a life changing experience. More importantly, because many of the more than 50,000 children served in the last six years have little access to mentors studying or working in a STEM field, the STEM Ambassadors can actually change lives by inspiring future scientists and engineers.
