Synopsis

Share your enthusiasm, commitment and passion for science with young people by becoming a Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) ambassador. As a STEM ambassador you will engage with schools to provide teachers with your expertise, experience and enthusiasm for your subject, and contribute to a multitude of different programmes and activities for students.

The benefits for young people are immeasurable. Acting as a STEM ambassador you will have the opportunity to make a real difference and gain a sense of achievement by imparting your extensive skills and expertise to young people in schools. Our picture shows how much enjoyment school students can have in chemistry classes, in this case in making casein.

To find out more, come along on the evening of Tuesday 5 February. A panel of experts will talk about being a STEM ambassador and we hope will inspire you to impart your scientific knowledge at grass-roots level to nurture the next generation of scientists, technologists, engineers and mathematicians.
