Clean Energy Ambassadors at Paws on Science

CEI Clean Energy Ambassadors are graduate and undergraduate students that lead students in hands-on activities and present at community events such as Pacific Science Center Engineering Weekend, UW Engineering Discovery Days, school STEM fairs and many other events. We want to get students interested in STEM careers by connecting them with our fellows and undergraduates who can share their enthusiasm for science and engineering. CEI fellows benefit by honing their skills at communicating science to the public and gain first hand experience with programs to support broader impacts. In the last few years we have conducted more than 100 events and reached more than 40,000 students.

New! We now have the capability to respond to requests in Eastern Washington from our Clean Energy Ambassadors Affiliate at WSU and the Brian Collins Research Group.   Sign up for a visit below.

CEI can also arrange an on campus tour and/or workshop for secondary school groups.These typically involve about 1 hour of lab visits, a tour of tools such as the electronic microscope, a presentation, and possibly a hands-on workshop. Due to heavily used instruments and busy labs we are limited to one tour event a month and a cancellation fee may apply.
