Dear STEM Ambassador

August being a holiday month, is a great  time to recharge energies and a good time for me to remind everyone of the many upcoming opportunities in the Autumn term! Schools are already placing requests. STEM Ambassadors should record 1 activity each year, it’s not a huge requirement but many forget to add to their records and appear as ‘inactive’. To avoid messages about being 'inactive' remember to update your records! You can include public events as Ambassador activities too.

Important: if your DBS /ID card needs to be renewed we can arrange a meeting at your convenience or call into one of the inductions Bangor /Cardiff / Newport/ Swansea or Wrexham. A DBS is essential to be covered and insured for your role.

Swansea University showcases Chemistry at Work.
The new Chemistry Department at Swansea University hosted 100 year 9 students on July 11. The event was held in partnership with Royal Society of Chemistry. It was kindly coordinated by Dr Ian Mabbett Senior Lecturer and STEM Ambassador. Pupils from St Jospeh’s Port Talbot, Bishop Gore, Ysgol Llangynwyd and Penrehafod Swansea attended practical workshops delivered by Ambassadors:

  • Dr Joel Loveridge (Spectroscopy in a Suitcase),

  • Dr Ian Mabbett, (The role of chemistry in global sustainable development).

  • Llinos Misra (Chemical Coatings and Scratch Testing),

  • Cardiff University School of Chemistry (3D imaging of molecules)

  • myself with Sources and Uses of Radioactivity.

Joel was delighted to present sessions to his old school Bishop Gore, a great way to inspire pupils.
The event was a popular success, teachers commenting ‘These type of sessions with more hands on activities are just what we need’ ‘Just being at the University is inspiring and helps raise ambitions’
 
Pupils comments were all positive ‘Swansea University is a cool place to learn’ ‘Loved the parts where we got to do a real science experiment’
The 3D workshop was a noted by many as cutting edge technology not available for schools, helping pupils understand the advances and relevance of work at Universities in leading research. Much appreciation was given for all the hard work in the organisation.

Renishaw race to the front with Green Power Goblin

Greenpower racing events are held at many venues across the UK. Teams of pupils or students build a car which they race at a local event. The Goblin event is aimed for 9 – 11 yrs http://www.greenpower.co.uk

60 primary school teams from 6 schools travelled to Renishaw Miskin from South Wales and Somerset, to battle it out to become crowned as the overall winner. Each team built an electric single seat car at their primary schools and then competed in a slalom, drag race and sprint event during the course of the race day. The day ended in victory for Millfield Preparatory School Somerset.
Abercerdin Primary School had great success winning ‘Best Portfolio’ detailing how they built their IET Formula Goblin, how they obtained sponsorship, as well as many other topics.

15 STEM Ambassadors at Rensihaws were joined by Ambassadors Rhian Jones and Joshua Bratchley to support the pupils as judges and mentors.

STEM Ambassador Simon Biggs, Education Outreach Officer at Renishaw commented
"It’s so good to see new schools taking part in the event this year; the excitement and enthusiasm from the schools has been fantastic. We can clearly see that pupils who took part in the event have used STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) subjects to improve the performance of their cars this year and have also thought of new ways to build innovative body work for the Goblin racers” 
 
Jeremy Way, CEO of Greenpower added, ”We are extremely grateful to Renishaw for all of the support they have provided. This allowed us to run the event which inspires so many children into STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) related careers later on in life.”  
“South Wales is an area that we would like to continue to grow and develop; next year we’d like to see double the amount of schools engaged in the project and attending the event.” 


If you would like to get a school involved in the Greenpower Project or would like to support next year’s event, please contact info@greenpower.co.uk

Going the Extra Mile - Bob Love and Chris Probert at Llangors Primary.  

STEM Ambassador Bob Love took an amazing workshop on Robots to a small rural school Llangors near Brecon. Teaming with Bob was STEM Ambassador Chris Probert. The amazing scale of the workshop and quality of the practical activites was testified by teacher Meg Jenkins who had placed a request. Clearly the school have benefitted from continual Ambassador visits as this was their 6th experience of Ambassador quality delivery! Bob is planning a Drone workshop for next term and welcomes Ambassadors wishing to see and support his activities.

“Miss Hurn said their class had a wonderful day! (She's very excited about the drones next year...) I just wanted to thank you again, especially for the level of effort you went to to really go above and beyond for the children. I really think the extra mile makes all the difference.” Meg Jenkins

"Thank you so much Bob and Chris, we had loads of fun!" pupils

 ICE Bridge Prestatyn High
STEM Ambassador Mark James
“I would just like to say what a great day in Prestatyn high school it was. Thank you for giving me the opportunity to take part in the event. The ICE bridge is a great concept and can be used in many different ways. The Pig in a pipe really tested the pupils, and myself having never "played" with K-NEX kit. I met some fantastic people that are doing great work, such as Matthew Allport and Dr Iestyn Pierce.
I have applied to become a Bloodhound ambassador too as a result and would probably be able to offer this as a STEM event in the future. Once again Thank you a real pleasure.

Lab in a Lorry visiting Ysgol Bae Baglan with 6 STEM Ambassadors attending
“James, I wanted to say another HUGE thank you for organising such a brilliant event. I cannot believe the lorry is a free resource and I hope that we can see each other again! The pupils AND staff thoroughly enjoyed and it had the whole school talking. Even our primary pupils were asking if they could go on the lorry!
It was brilliant – I cannot thank you enough. 
If you ever have a free slot again please consider us!
