STEM Ambassadors

The STEM Ambassador Programme 

Become an ambassador

Volunteering as a STEM Ambassador is your chance to promote your skills to young learners, actively encourage them to enjoy STEM subjects, and inform them about the unique career opportunities that are available to them. By volunteering as an Ambassador, you could be opening up life-changing opportunities for many young people in your area. Anyone who has a desire to inspire children and young people in STEM subjects can become an Ambassador.

The main qualities that all Ambassadors share are enthusiasm and commitment, along with a passion for what they do.
