STEM Ambassadors can now offer online activities
Any activity created now has an ‘online’ checkbox as well a place to enter a link to a video conferencing call if required. This means teachers and youth/community group leaders now have access to 30,000+ STEM Ambassadors from across the UK, so think big with your online activity requests, maybe one of them can help.
This is designed to support schools who are currently open for children of key workers. STEM Ambassadors are a great way to bring a STEM professional into the classroom, demonstrating the real-world application of a subject or giving your students insight into a career.
STEM Ambassadors are now also able to think about what they could offer to schools remotely. This could be a video version of an activity they have delivered previously such as a Q&A, a careers talk or practical session. Or it could be something brand new from an Ambassador’s area of expertise which students would love engaging with.
All of this can be found in the new Offers section of the Ambassadors website on the left-hand menu. This lets a teacher or youth/community group leader express an interest in one or more STEM Ambassador Offers, automatically converting it into an activity once a date and time have been agreed on.
Teachers, youth/community group leaders, and STEM Ambassadors with existing website accounts can sign in to your dashboard to start using these new online activities now.
