Connecting students to real-world science

Midlands Science is delighted to launch an inspiring new programme which sees a wide range of science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) ambassadors from the Midlands region offering their time and passion to help bring STEM subjects to life and demonstrate the value of them in life and careers.

Through this brand new platform, we will be introducing a number of local people who work across a variety of STEM roles and through an online vlog, each person will talk about their own role, training and background.

We hope that this will bring a fresh and inspiring perspective to STEM subjects and careers in order to engage more young people in the Midlands and beyond.

We have seen how students have really benefited from the many speakers we have delivered to classrooms over the years to date and we have witnessed the positive impact that this has had on their engagement and enjoyment of STEM subjects.

Hearing from someone who works in a real STEM setting can make a real difference to a young person’s perception of STEM and future potential careers. We also hope that this will help to narrow the ever-present skills gap. This is a wonderful opportunity for Midlands Science to collaborate with a range of experts and refine our approaches for broadening the reach of science in society through new and innovative ways.
