Primary and secondary school teachers got to meet with a number of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) Ambassadors thanks to a networking event at the University of Worcester.
The purpose of the event was to give teachers in Worcestershire the opportunity to enrich their curriculum in the subjects of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics.
STEM Ambassadors are volunteers who use the subjects in their daily working life and are prepared to freely give their time to visit schools.
As part of their school visits, the STEM Ambassadors share their passion through directed activities which might encourage pupils to follow a path into a STEM related career and thus help to reduce the national shortage of young people who want a career in this sector.
