STEM Volunteers

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.

Should you wish to do so, you can register as a STEM Ambassador using the link below.
Registration is completely FREE.


What is a STEM Volunteer?

We work on behalf of many organisations to support and manage STEM programmes. A vital element towards enhancing student learning, is that of direct, employer and student engagement. Hearing first hand experience, advice and understanding career pathways from people in current jobs are important in breaking down stereotypes and raising aspirations in young people of all ages. You do not need to become a STEM Ambassador to be a Volunteer. We are always looking for people to offer their time and join us in inspiring the next generation of STEM experts.
