Ambassadors help the College of Education deepen its impact through thought-partnership, outreach and advocacy. Driving positive change in the field of education requires collective action. Ambassadors increase their understanding of the prevailing issues impacting education and learn about College research, partnerships and outcomes. In turn, they communicate their discoveries within spheres of influence.

This video tells the story of how Neighborhood House, a youth-serving organization, supported two distinct NSF-funded projects coming together to form an innovative, locally-based STEAM curriculum for undergraduate and middle school students. The first project is STUDIO, a non-traditional mentorship program bringing together STEM undergraduates at the University of Washington and youth living in a historically marginalized neighborhood in the Pacific Northwest. The second project is Mobile City Science, a digital, participatory mapping curriculum supporting youth to imagine and advocate for community changes through spatial data. As the nexus of relations between youth, university undergraduates, graduate students and the larger community, Neighborhood House hosted an opportunity for middle school and undergraduate students to collaboratively code and teach others about the assets of the area as well as a neighborhood vision. The result was a non-hierarchical educational setting in which middle school students shared their community and technological expertise and undergraduate students considered the potential of STEM for affecting local change.
