We’ll bring our science programs to you.
We partner with school districts to support science learning. We offer district-wide elementary, middle, and high school programs, either virtually or in-person.
We collaborate with a range of partners to innovate in science education. Together, we go further.
Are you interested in environmental science and have a passion for addressing climate change? The Climate Ambassadors program explores the crossroads of environmental research, climate communication, and personal and professional growth. This program is an ideal opportunity for teens with a science-oriented mind and a relationship-oriented personality interested in pursuing a career in environmental studies, climate science, climate communication, equity and environmental justice, science education, and outreach.
The program is open to teens entering grades 10-12 seeking a role in climate research and increased voice in climate communication.
If you are considering this program you should make sure you are available for once a month, Sunday workshops from 2-5 pm at the Lawrence. Workshops include environmental research, public engagement, personal learning, and college and career pathway programming.
Make sure you are available for all workshops from 2-5 pm at the Lawrence Hall of Science on: 8/27, 9/23, 10/22, 11/12, 12/10 in 2023, and 1/21, 2/11, 3/24, 4/14, 5/19 in 2024.
No, you do not get ‘paid’ per hour for the workshops. Instead this is a stipend awarded for your participation in all components of the program. The stipend is awarded to teens who fulfill all 10 required workshops and a climate related Teen Research Program this summer. If for some reason you need or decide to miss a required workshop, the stipend will be adjusted accordingly up to 2 absences.
If for some reason you need or decide to miss a required workshop, the stipend will be adjusted accordingly up to 2 absences. If you know you will miss more than 2 workshops, it would be best not to apply.
