Support for STEM Clubs

STEM Clubs are individual to each school and there is no fixed formula for running one. There is, however, plenty of support available for those wanting to start a club focused on STEM-related subjects.

The STEM Clubs programme provides additional support through the STEM Clubs community group, our club support team and the STEM Ambassadors programme.


  • Find a STEM Ambassador to support your Club activity​

    STEM Ambassadors are volunteers from a wide range of science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) related jobs and disciplines across the UK. They offer their time and enthusiasm to help bring STEM subjects to life and demonstrate the value of them in life and careers.

    “It’s been brilliant for trying to get people to come in, if I need something it takes me two minutes to get the activity I want and then I get a response quickly” – Martin Sexton,  Mildenhall College Academy

    “Absolutely straightforward, it’s the second one I’ve done, and it took me a matter of minutes” - Lois Horner, Thornhill Community Academy
