What are STEM Ambassadors?
STEM Ambassadors are leading industry professionals who volunteer a few hours of their time each year helping encourage children in local schools to take up science, technology, engineering and maths subjects. These talented individuals help inspire the next generation of young scientists, mathematicians and engineers by providing educative and fun activities and talks in schools throughout the region.
What do STEM Ambassadors do?
STEM Ambassadors lead exciting and informative activities with school children and young people to break common misconceptions about science and technology subjects. Subjects which are often though of as being “difficult” or “hard to pass exams in.” They show young people that these can be fascinating and enjoyable subjects with great career prospects.
