Why become a STEM Ambassador?
Being a STEM Ambassador is about engaging and enthusing young people with STEM subjects. You will help encourage students to consider further study of STEM subjects and progression into related careers, inspiring the next generation of STEM professionals. It offers the chance to give something back to education and the wider community, whilst giving you the chance to develop your own skills and improve yourself.
