Clean Energy Ambassadors

Program Details

CEI Clean Energy Ambassadors are UW graduate and undergraduate students in STEM fields who lead students in hands-on activities at K-12 schools around Washington state. and present at community events such as the Pacific Science Center Engineering Weekend and Engineering Discovery Days. Ambassadors hone their skills at communicating science to the public and gain first-hand experience with programs that support broader impacts. Ambassador activities include Solar Car Races, a Meet a Scientist presentation, or any of our Lessons including hands-on workshops on Mini Solar Panels or Solar Spinners.

A young man with a black t-shirt and a yellow nametag sits at a table with a young student. The two are working together to assemble a small solar spinner from a petri dish.
Clean Energy Ambassador Evan Jahrman, a Ph.D. student in physics, helps a student at Lynnwood, WA's Hilltop Elementary assemble a solar spinner.
