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.
