All About STEM NEWS
Volunteers Week: Become a STEM Ambassador
STEM Ambassadors are volunteers with STEM careers and backgrounds, who give their time to help show young people where the study of STEM subjects could take them. They help put the school curriculum into a real-world context, showing the practical application of the subjects studied in school and excite young people about the possibilities of STEM for their own lives and the world in which they live.
STEM Ambassadors come from all walks of life and might be 17 years old, just starting out on their STEM career journey, 70+ years old, with a wealth of knowledge and experience, or anything in between.
By becoming a STEM Ambassador volunteer, you can make a real difference to a young person’s perception of STEM subjects and careers by taking part in a range of different activities. These might be advertised on the STEM Learning STEM Ambassador website or organised by yourself or your employer. You may wish to make use of some of the suggested resources or develop your skills by taking part in any training on offer. You might event be the lucky recipient of a prestigious STEM Inspiration Award!

The Programme provides the perfect platform for you to raise the profile of your company, support recruitment and address the skills gap.
