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. This work also helps teachers gain more awareness of new and innovative STEM-related careers as these ambassadors bring learning from industry and real experience into the classroom, connecting this to the curriculum and to what is already being taught.

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.
