STEM Ambassadors supporting community groups

As a community or youth group, you can book a STEM Ambassador to engage with young people, either face-to-face or virtually, free of charge. 
 
STEM Ambassadors volunteer their time to inspire young people to progress further in STEM subjects and demonstrate their value in life and careers. They deliver a range of activities such as career talks, mentoring, practical workshops and exhibitions.
 
This year, STEM Ambassadors have responded to the challenges that COVID-19 has presented by volunteering remotely through:
 
'Discover STEM', videos covering curriculum related topics and careers
 
Career activities which highlight how STEM subjects are used in the world of work

Offering online activities you can access via video call
 
Enrichment activities – from supporting STEM Clubs to mentoring projects
