STEM Ambassadors

What is a STEM Ambassador?

STEM Ambassadors volunteer their time and support to promote STEM subjects to young learners in a vast range of original, creative, practical and engaging ways. There are thousands of brilliant and inspiring volunteers helping to support the STEM curriculum and raise awareness of STEM careers, by revealing how essential STEM is throughout the world.

STEM Ambassadors cross all ages and backgrounds, represent over a vast spectrum of different employers across the UK. They help open the doors to a world of opportunities and possibilities which come from pursuing STEM subjects and careers. They not only inspire young people; they also support teachers in the classroom by explaining current applications of STEM in industry or research.
