Welcome to the Ambassador Showcase!
BACKGROUND: Systems Thinkers in STEM (STiS) began in 2018 with the creation of career-connected resources for students to learn about the many unique STEM careers available in the Puget Sound area. In 2021, we extended this series by offering virtual learning experiences for high school students across the world through a Systems Thinkers in STEM Ambassadorship (STiSA).
Over the past year, 288 students participated in the first Tier of this program to learn about systems. From there, 191 students moved forward with a Tier 2 course in one of 9 different cohorts. For the next eight months, we will showcase over 50 of these 191 Ambassadors, each with their unique skills sets, extended projects, and new resources. All will be displayed on our website and social media. Follow along through #STEMsystemsthinkers or via our social media channels which can be found at the bottom of this page.
Check out the video below from Senior Vice President, Founder of SEE, Director, and Professor Nitin Baliga, featuring an introduction to the program and the official welcome to our showcase:
