Request STEM Ambassador support
Would you like the support of a STEM Ambassador volunteer for an activity you are running? Find out how to advertise the opportunity to the network of STEM Ambassador volunteers.
If you have already planned an activity for which you’d like to request STEM Ambassador support, you can follow the instructions below to advertise the opportunity to the network of volunteers. A more detailed, printable version of the instructions is available in the Downloads section.
N.B. Ideally, we suggest 4-6 weeks minimum notice for advertising activities, to give volunteers a chance to plan their work diaries.
Requesting STEM Ambassador Support
1a. If you do not already have a STEM Learning account, you’ll need to set one up. If you work in a school, you can set up a Teacher or Technician Account here. Or, if you’re working with young people in a different context you can set up a Youth or Community Group Leader account here.
1b. If you do already have a STEM Learning Teacher Account or a Youth or Community Group Leader Account, you will need to log-in here.
2. On your ‘Dashboard’, click the ‘Activities’ link on the left-hand side, then select ‘Advertise an Activity’.
3. Complete the form that opens and provide information about your activity to help STEM Ambassadors decide whether they would like to offer to help.
4. Ambassadors will be able to view your activity online and express an interest in helping. You will be able to message them via the website to make arrangements.
5. Once the activity has taken place, you’ll need to click the ‘Ambassadors Confirmed’ button on your activity page. This will log the activity on the Ambassadors’ volunteering profiles. You, and also the Ambassadors who took part, will also receive an email asking for feedback about the activity.
