Student Ambassadors create links between the museum, the university, and the greater Lincoln community. Through their participation in outreach events, programs, and museum tours student ambassadors help raise awareness of the museum and the natural sciences.
The State Museum Student Ambassador Program consists of 10–12 students. Participants will have the opportunity to learn more about the natural sciences and museums while sharpening their leadership and communication skills.
The State Museum Student Ambassador Program promotes the mission of the State Museum through education, outreach and programming.
