On the 7 May STEM Ambassadors will be presenting a day of live streamed activities for schools and students at home.


Unfortunately we have taken the decision to cancel the rest of the live stream for STEM Ambassadors Live. We have experienced too many technical issues today and we don’t want to disappoint you further if videos also don’t go as planned.

We would like to thank each of you for watching and apologies that the live stream did not go as we had hoped. A huge thank you to Dallas Campbell and our brilliant STEM Ambassadors who took part today. Our plan is to re-record each of today’s session and make them available on YouTube soon.

Thank you for your patience and understanding and please accept our apologies.

The STEM Ambassador Team


The day will include a series of half hour sessions from STEM Ambassadors covering a range of subjects across science, engineering, mathematicians and more. A Question and Answer forum will also run alongside each session, allowing students to engage their curiosity and dig further into the subject. Each presenter will bring a wealth of expertise from their work as a STEM professional, using activities already tried and tested in the classroom.

The event starts at 10am and will be live-streamed on the STEM Learning YouTube channel. The sessions will cover a range of ages, but will mostly be focused on older primary school and younger secondary school students.
