STEM Ambassadors: making an impact

STEM Ambassadors are a UK national treasure. An important and exciting free of charge resource for young learners, teachers and other individuals working with young people - in and outside of the classroom. They bring a fresh and inspiring perspective to STEM lessons and careers information, and complement excellent teaching in schools and colleges.

In this report, we share with you four key lessons we have learned through recent research and evaluation of STEM Ambassador activity. These lessons illustrate the key impacts that STEM Ambassadors have on young people and those who work with young people. They also demonstrate the impact that volunteering as a STEM Ambassador has on the individuals involved, and on the organisations that support them as employers or professional bodies.

A physical copy of the report can be found in the STEM Resource Centre.
