Science Expo's Ambassador Program

Science Expo’s (SE) mission is to put a focus on the application and creativity aspects of STEM, providing opportunities to high school students to excel outside of the classroom -- to enrich, empower and explore. Ambassadors are the forerunners of this mission.

 

The Ambassadors Program consists of more than 100 high school students across Alberta, British Columbia and Ontario, representing 40 different cities and regions.

 

The program provides high school students with applicable leadership, community engagement and event planning experience, while fostering relationships within a high-achieving community that spans across Canada (Top 20 Under 20 winners, Next 36 participants, major scholarship/science fair alumna).
