Powerful Practicals

Whilst developing a practical activity may be daunting, our Powerful Practicals training can support you through the process of creating, developing and delivering practicals.

With advice on health and safety, planning and pitching your message at an appropriate level, this training will help you build something interactive into all your STEM Ambassador activities, from careers talks to off-timetable days.

The training is available face-to-face through your local STEM Ambassador Hub or online.

Contact your local STEM Ambassador Hub

Your local STEM Ambassador Hub can advise you on when the training will be running. If there are no sessions due to run in your local area, there may be sessions nearby from neighbouring Hubs.

This workbook is given to you on the course and includes the slides. However, there are some useful tips and lesson plans which you may find useful if you are not able to attend a face-to-face training session.
