Student-led STEM Clubs - Handbook
A useful handbook for setting up a student-led STEM club, with exemplars from three schools.
It is increasingly recognised that giving students opportunities to act as ambassadors and mentors for STEM subjects outside of school can be of great benefit to the individual, their institution, and to the broader public. The mentoring student learns new transferable employability skills, whilst primary school pupils meet enthusiastic role models who engage them in STEM subjects. A key benefit for the younger pupils is the opportunity to interact with young people close in age and better able to relate to them, whilst demonstrating how STEM subjects develop and knowledge broadens throughout their education.
Student ambassador schemes help develop valuable skills that apply to other subjects, further education and future employment by providing opportunities to learn about time management, project organisation, teamwork, leadership and communication.
