STEM Ambassador programme
See Science is the contract holder to manage the STEM Ambassador Hub Wales and the STEM Club programme for Wales.
We keep schools in Wales informed about high-quality activities that they can access to enrich and enhance the STEM curriculum. The STEM Ambassador programme enables schools and teachers to work with a range of STEM Ambassadors and incorporate exemplary links to the world of work into their teaching.
Anyone over the age of 17 with skills or interest in Science, Technology, Engineering and/or Mathematics (STEM) can register as a STEM Ambassador.
The most important quality for a STEM Ambassador is to be an enthusiastic and positive role model for STEM subjects and STEM-linked careers. STEM Ambassadors not only inspire young people; they also support teachers in the classroom by explaining current applications of STEM in industry or research. STEM Ambassadors are of all ages and backgrounds and represent more than 1,500 different employers.
How to request a STEM Ambassador visit
If your school is planning an event or a project, a STEM Ambassador may be able to provide support, ideas and other types of input. You can register with STEM Learning and request an Ambassador here or contact us directly at firstname.lastname@example.org. We will add your request to the Schools requests web page and to the STEM Ambassador e-newsletter.
The dedicated teacher section of the See Science website includes pages on educational opportunities, events, resources, news, funding, grants, competitions, science schemes and more. We also send out regular e-newsletters to primary and secondary schools across Wales, in both English and Welsh.

- 55% of pupils say they enjoy science; this increases to 71% for pupils who have had contact with a STEM Ambassador and 80% for STEM Club members
- 87% of teachers report an increased awareness of STEM subjects and their real world applications amongst their students as a result of the STEM Ambassador programme.
