Midlands Science has established this new network of STEM ambassadors to help schools, youth groups or community groups to access inspiration and advice about careers in STEM.
Our STEM Ambassadors are volunteers who represent a wide range of STEM-related jobs and disciplines and they play a vital role in helping young people to understand why STEM subjects are so important. One of our primary objectives in Midlands Science is to increase the number of young people choosing STEM and in order to do, so we have been working with our network for many years to help engage more and more students each year.
We regularly seek feedback and have proven evidence of the impact that STEM Ambassadors can have in increasing young peoples’ interest in STEM subjects.
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.
