The Engineering Ambassador Program (EAP) is off to a successful semester so far. From introducing themselves to new College of Engineering students at the New Student Welcome Fair, to hosting a panel for high school students at Downtown College Prep’s Planetarium, to hosting a very successful first general meeting, the ambassadors are taking big strides in manifesting their goal: to develop professional communication skills and show exemplary leadership while performing community outreach that encourages and inspires future engineers.
The ambassadors have several events planned for the next few months, such as doing a hands-on activity with over 100 six and seventh grade students at Mendenhall Middle School in Livermore, California. They will also have a booth in November, at the Bay Area Science Festival in San Francisco’s AT&T Park!
The four Engineering Ambassador Core Coordinators, Andrea Olivas, Melissa Lauzon, Uyen Sou, and Chris Kackman, dedicate a lot of time and hard work to making each event possible, and to training new ambassadors.
