Who are STEM Ambassadors

STEM Ambassadors include people from a range of disciplines and backgrounds, including engineers, designers, architects, scientists and technicians. They help bring a new and inspiring perspective to STEM lessons and career opportunities.

Our aim is to ensure that teachers, schools and colleges, as well as youth and community groups, are able to access STEM Ambassador support to inspire and engage young people with STEM subjects.

What do they do?

They volunteer their time, enthusiasm and experiences to encourage and inspire young people to progress further in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) subjects.

Through a range of activities, including presentations, mentoring and careers talks, STEM Ambassadors play an essential role in inspiring the next generation with the world of STEM subjects and careers. Their support isn’t just limited to the classroom – you can invite a STEM Ambassador into your STEM Club, employer, or youth and community group.

Become a STEM Ambassador

Being a STEM Ambassador is about engaging and enthusing young people with science, technology, engineering and mathematics. You will help encourage students to consider further study of STEM subjects and progression into related careers, inspiring the next generation of STEM professionals. It offers the chance to give something back to education and the wider community, whilst giving you the chance to develop your own skills and improve yourself.
