The Science Ambassador Program

About Us

The Science Ambassador Program pairs senior university science, engineering and health science students with rural and remote Aboriginal community schools, to support creative and culturally-relevant science teaching and learning. Our Science Ambassadors work alongside teachers to present hands-on science activities, facilitate class discussions and mentor students exploring possibilities for careers and continuing education.

A key feature of The Science Ambassador Program is the length of time that our Science Ambassadors spend in the community, 4-6 weeks over a school year. We strive to build meaningful connections between the Science Ambassadors' activities and community priorities, and to establish long-term relationships with the University of Saskatchewan.

Planning for 2017: We are currently seeking additional sponsors to partner 12 host schools with 24 Science Ambassadors in Spring of 2017!
