Chief Science Officers (CSOs) are 6-12th grade youth, selected to serve as STEM ambassadors in their schools and communities. A key goal of the program is to place youth squarely in the center of STEM awareness, promotion, experience and community action.

The program works to:
- create a global network of diverse STEM leaders,
- foster communication and collaboration among CSOs,
- enrich STEM culture and career awareness, and
- amplify youth voice in STEM conversations in the community.
