There are many different and exciting activities to get involved in as a STEM Ambassador! Any actvity that directly or indirectly benefits young people aged between 3 and 18 in the UK, that is voluntary and promotes the STEM subjects, is valid as a STEM Ambassador activity. This can include non-school activities within youth groups too!
- Act as role models and offer careers talks, speed networking and work experience
- Provide practical support for experiments, STEM-related Clubs, competitions and Advanced Higher investigations
- Provide on-site visits for pupils to see the real-life link between what they are learning in the classroom and the outside world
- Offer an insight into active research currently being carried out in industry and academia
- Enhance curriculum learning by relating to real-life examples
- Help teachers develop and understand new course content to keep their knowledge up to date
STEM Ambassadors can find opportunities to work with young people via their own links with teachers or youth groups, through their company’s education programme, through their Professional Institution or they can volunteer for activities as advertised on the STEM Learning website.
