STEM Ambassadors are volunteers who offer their time, enthusiasm and experiences to encourage a wide range of audiences to achieve more and progress further in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM).
They are an important, exciting, free-of-charge resource for teachers, bringing a new and inspiring perspective to STEM lessons and career opportunities.
The Ambassadors are able to enhance and enrich the teaching and learning of STEM subjects by sharing their own interest, skills and experience in STEM. They commit to running at least one activity each year which involves school pupils, family groups, community groups or the general public. Opportunities can come from their own contacts, employer or through local requests offered by the STEM Ambassador Hub.
