Carnegie Mellon University

The Gelfand Center hires Carnegie Mellon students to serve as Gelfand STEM Ambassadors to teach K-12 students about science, technology, engineering or mathematics subjects and research through hands-on activities, demonstrations, tours and other fun learning activities conducted in community centers, schools and on Carnegie Mellon’s campus.

STEM Ambassadors participate in paid weekly professional development programs to learn how to present a variety of STEM-focused lessons and demonstrations. These sessions include information about working with children of different ages. STEM Ambassadors also design new demonstrations and hands-on activities.

STEM Ambassadors are invited to participate in programs as they are scheduled. We understand that all STEM Ambassadors will not be able to participate in every program because of class schedules.For more information regarding Gelfand STEM Ambassadors, please reach out to Judy Hallinen,
