About EAN

The EAN Program started in 2009 at Penn State, and has become a national model in mission to promote engineering to the K-12 community. Currently over 30 universities in three different countries have adopted this model to share the impact of engineering on the health, happiness, and safety of our world, as well as inspire youth with the amazing opportunities engineering offers. Engineering Ambassadors are students who enjoy talking with K-12 students and sharing their passions about their majors.

About the EAN National Training Conference 

The conference features the special communication training that is the hallmark of the Engineering Ambassadors Network. During the workshop, Engineering Ambassadors (EAs) work in teams to build a 15-minute outreach presentations. The presentation style is unlike most typical engineering communication – think TED talk, rather than boring conference presentations. EAs will walk away with newfound confidence in public speaking that they can apply to outreach, their academic career, and professional pursuits. The workshop also offers a valuable opportunity for EAs to network with each other. The experience of attending this workshop forms lasting bonds between students.
