STEP UP 4 Women Ambassadors

STEP UP 4 Women Ambassadors are volunteer high school physics teachers that will train others on how to effectively reduce barriers for women in physics by using STEP UP 4 Women lesson materials in their classroom. The goal of the Ambassador Program is to create a community of physics teachers dedicated to improving inclusive practices in the classroom by propagating research-based lesson plans to physics teachers in order to encourage more women to pursue a physics degree. Ambassadors will work with other teacher leaders from around the country, be recognized for their work, and earn a stipend for their participation. Ambassadors should be mindful of employing the Everyday Actions for creating an inclusive classroom and be willing to be reflective on how they are helping increase young women’s physics identity.
