MEP Ambassador School Visits Request

Developed in 2014, the Minority Engineering Program (MEP) Student Ambassadors work as a team and collaboratively work with the MEP Program office staff to deliver early education on-campus and off-campus outreach services to expose historically underrepresented and other elementary, middle, and high school students to the field of engineering.

MEP Ambassadors

Through partnerships with target schools in Indiana and Chicago, the MEP Ambassadors deliver on-site innovative, hands-on engineering projects to inspire and encourage students at an early age to pursue careers in engineering. This semester alone the MEP Ambassadors visited more than 1300 middle and high school students in Indiana and Illinois. The goal of the MEP Ambassadors is to increase interest in engineering by providing a positive STEM experience. This fall we were visited by 250 students and the entire faculty of the ITW David Speer College Preparatory Academy freshman class in connection with the MEP Ambassador Program.

Ambassador Testimonials

"The MEP Ambassador Program has allowed me to reach out to various students across different high schools and be the voice that instills hope and inspiration in their minds for future success”.

Ambassador Testimonials 2

“One of my passions is helping pre-college students gain an understanding of engineering. The MEP Ambassador Program gave me the opportunity to engage middle school students in a classroom engineering activity, and speak with high school students about my undergraduate experiences while studying engineering”.

Ambassador Testimonials 3

“The MEP Ambassador Program has proven to be increasingly rewarding to me because it gives me the opportunity to show children that math and science aren't boring incomprehensible subjects, but rather fun and exciting subjects that spark their excitement for engineering, and I love helping them get to that point and experiencing that moment with them”.
