The STEM Ambassador Program connects STEM scientists with underserved, "science-inattentive" community groups (e.g.-–those who don't typically seek out science by visiting zoos, aquariums, watching nature documentaries, going to museums, etc.). The Program Coordinator will assist with helping scientists effectively communicate their research to these underserved groups.
The STEM Ambassador Program at the University of Utah seeks a Program Coordinator for this program (May 2016 - January 2018, with possible extension, pending future funding) to connect STEM scientists with underserved, "science-inattentive" community groups (e.g.-–those who don't typically seek out science by visiting zoos, aquariums, nature centers, museums, etc.).
The University of Utah is looking for a 75% Program Assistant to work with a collaborative team of STEM researchers, informal science educators, and community leaders to create innovative opportunities and trainings for public engagement with underserved public audiences. These activities will grow from evidence-based educational activities and from science of learning research.
