Who are STEM Ambassadors?

scienceworkshopSTEM Ambassadors are passionate and committed, offering their time voluntarily to enthuse and inspire students within schools about STEM subjects. They can do this through a variety of activities such as clubs, careers talks, helping with school events, lessons and competitions, and much more.

This has been one of my most favourite experiences so far, in realising the positive outcomes of the work of a STEM ambassador. To see one person glimpse a positive view of their own future in STEM is reward enough"
