Who are STEMbassadors?
STEMbassadors carry forward the mission of Thomas Jefferson High School for Science and Technology to schools in the region. STEM is an acronym for Science Technology Engineering and Mathematics. STEMbassadors volunteer at neighborhood school-based STEM efforts as well as TJ outreach events aimed at inspiring the joy of learning at the prospect of discovery to younger populations. STEMbassadors are predominantly TJ students, but also include other area high school students, TJ parents, alumni, and corporate partners who work alongside us in promoting STEM.
How do I become a STEMbassador?If you are a TJ student and want to become a student STEMbassador, check the Monday 8th period listings for upcoming meetings related to your base school or school district location. If you are not a TJ student, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org and describe your interest. If you are interested in becoming a TJ stembassador liaison, please fill out the Adult Liaison Interest Form. To sign up to be an adult STEMbassador liaison, please choose a school on our SignUpGenius page (if a school is not listed, here is a good chance a liaison is already helping there). If you already are an appointed STEMbassador liaison, you might be interested in accessing the STEMbassador liaison portal (user name and password required). If you are a school-based STEM contact, please notify Amos Simms-Smith about your interest to connect with a STEMbassador liaison.
