STEM education embedded in communities across the UK
A new network of STEM Ambassador Hubs has been established to ensure that teachers and schools, as well as non-school group leaders, such as Scout and Guide groups, are able to access the renowned STEM Ambassador programme no matter where they live or work.
This network has been established, to provide a seamless connection between STEM Ambassadors and young people across the UK, to inspire the next generation of STEM professionals – from designers to astrophysicists, engineers to farmers.
Yvonne Baker, Chief Executive of National STEM Learning Centre and Network, said:
“We are delighted to be integrating the prestigious STEM Ambassador programme, alongside our network of Science Learning Partnerships, and other projects supporting STEM education.
We have been given a wonderful opportunity to further develop our real, significant and sustained impact on STEM education and STEM skills.
However, we cannot do this alone - our partnerships with the STEM Ambassador Hubs, Science Learning Partnerships and our partners in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland, are fundamental to our success.”
The National STEM Learning Centre and Network’s core aim is to improve STEM education and enable more young people to enjoy, achieve and progress in STEM subjects and STEM related careers, and the STEM Ambassador programme provides young people with an excellent opportunity to engage with experienced professionals or academics working in STEM subjects and careers.
