What could a STEM Ambassador do for your school?

STEM Ambassadors bring enthusiasm and support to classroom projects. Teachers and schools benefit from access to quality-assured volunteers who can help in a variety of ways. Via STEM Ambassadors, teachers can not only get support for enriching and enhancing the curriculum through activities or events, but can also increase their own understanding of the career paths to which STEM subjects can lead. Schools can benefit from enhanced links with local business or individual volunteers with valuable skills.

For more information please visit the About STEM Ambassadors page.

STEM Challenges

STEM Challenges

The first batch of adapted STEM Challenge resource packs are now available to download, free of charge, from the STEM Challenges website.

STEM Learning manages the STEM Challenges programme which started as a series of Challenge competitions for secondary schools.

Each Challenge was originally inspired by London 2012 and aimed to provide students, aged 11-14 years, with an opportunity to use their STEM skills and help provide a real-life context for these skills. Now that London 2012 is over, STEM Learning has adapted the original Challenge resource packs, so they can continue to remain relevant and useful to schools in the long-term. Each STEM Challenge is designed to take 6-8 weeks and is an ideal activity to carry out in a STEM Club environment. Each pack also includes two STEM Ambassador case studies linked to the Challenge theme.

You can download all of the materials to carry out all the Challenges in your class or club.

Full details are contained in the website .

STEM Clubs & STEMNetworking

STEM Clubs & STEMNetworking

If you are running an after-school or lunchtime club related to any sort of STEM activity, for example a Young Engineers and Science Club, Astronomy Club, Maths Club, Food Technology Club, or Camera Club, you will be interested to know that STEM Learning has set up STEM Clubs to network and share information.

The STEM Clubs offer a wealth of information online for teachers who are involved in Clubs, and gives you guides on starting and running a club, ideas, and information on resources and challenges. 

STEM Learning wants to enable every school or college in the country to have a STEM Club and is hence providing a platform for sharing information to every club in the country, with no cost involved, regardless of where the Club originates from or who it is organised by.

More information about STEM Clubs can be found on the website at www.stemclubs.net
