The Alabama School of Math and Science (ASMS) launched the school’s STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) Ambassador program during the 2014-2015 school year.
Through this program, ASMS students and staff spread awareness across Alabama about the importance of STEM education. STEM Ambassadors visit elementary and middle schools to conduct science experiments, such as helping students build and launch model rockets. Schools can also schedule to tour ASMS and perform lab demonstrations alongside STEM Ambassadors in ASMS classrooms.
“Our mission at ASMS is to provide academically motivated Alabama students with exceptional preparation in the fields of math and science, empowering them to improve their community, state, and nation,” ASMS President Dr. Monica Motley says. “The ASMS STEM Ambassador program is another step in that direction. Our students get to inspire other students across the state about the importance of STEM education and show students that hands-on learning can be fun.”
