Are you passionate about science and excited about working with Science ATL to bring people together through the wonder of science?

Does the future of scientific innovation and the impact of the science community in Atlanta inspire you?

As an Ambassador you will bring to life the brand new Science Behind the Scenes teen event series! The Science Behind the Scenes event series, designed for teens by teens, offers exclusive behind-the-scenes tours of Atlanta’s captivating STEM, cultural, and educational institutions to learn more about the people and science behind these organizations. 

Science ATL Youth Ambassadors is an engaging and rewarding program for teens to craft the science social scene while gaining valuable experience in public event planning, social media management, branding and marketing, community outreach, and much more!
