Leadership, Outreach, & Professional Development for Students

The Wise Ambassadors is a community of undergraduate and graduate women studying in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) majors. We organize K-12 and community outreach activities, plan professional development opportunities, and provide service to local organizations. We're a student-run group that receives support through WiSE - we create our own experiences and opportunities!

At the Lucas Elementary STEM Fair, the WiSE Ambassadors guided an experiment involving baking soda, vinegar, and balloons! The kids who attended had a blast making their exploding balloons with the WiSE Ambassadors activity leaders!
