Find out how we can support you

There are plenty of ways that STEM Learning can support you with your British Science Week activities.

Invite a STEM Ambassador into your classroom

Bring the world and wonder of science to life with support from our STEM Ambassadors.

With more than 30,000 STEM Ambassadors based around the UK, there are plenty of ways you can work with them to inspire young people.

Support for your STEM Clubs

STEM Clubs are a powerful and enjoyable way to engage young people with STEM subjects. They are fun, exciting and provide students with the opportunity to explore STEM outside the curriculum.

Our website is home to resources, support and guidance to help you set up a STEM Club or build-up an existing one.

Bursary-supported CPD

Whether you are looking for CPD at the National STEM Learning Centre, locally or online, we have a whole host of CPD to boost your confidence and scientific subject knowledge.

The majority of our CPD is bursary-supported, allowing you to easily access our high-quality support.
