The National Academy of Sciences and the National Academy of Engineering are launching a pilot of the Science & Engineering Ambassador Program in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, in 2012. The success of the pilot depends greatly on the involvement of members of the Pittsburgh community.
- Are you a scientist or engineer in Pittsburgh working in an energy-related field who is interested in becoming an ambassador?
- Are you an organization in Pittsburgh interested in becoming a partner of the Science & Engineering Ambassador Program?
- Are you a member of the Pittsburgh community with an idea for activities or events that would help bring energy experts in touch with opinion leaders in the community?
- Are you a member of the Pittsburgh community interested in being kept informed about the Science & Engineering Ambassador Program?
If you are a scientist or engineer working in an energy-related field in Pittsburgh and you are interested in communicating your work to broader audiences in the local community, contact us.
In the course of our planning for the Science & Engineering Ambassador Program, we have already reached out to a number of organizations in Pittsburgh to explore potential partnerships. But we may not have contacted you! If you recognize a way this program would be beneficial to your organization, please contact us.
The Office of Communications at the National Academies will be working with a local steering committee to plan specific activities and events that will complement and expand upon the activities already under way in the city. If you would like to suggest an idea for an event, please contact us.
If you would like to be informed about specific programs and activities related to the Science & Engineering Ambassador Program, contact us to be added to our e-mail list. When the pilot program is up and running in 2012, we will advise you of specific programs.
