STEM on the Go

WPI’s Engineering Ambassadors are taking their program on the road for the 2021-2022 academic year!  STEM on the Go offers opportunities for students to explore different topics in STEM through a 15-minute presentation and 45-minute hands-on activity led by WPI Engineering Ambassadors. The Engineering Ambassadors will highlight a topic in STEM and provide enough detail in the presentation for the students to be successful in their hands-on activity—no prior experience related to the topic is required. Engineering Ambassadors are excited to share their enthusiasm for STEM with your students!
