How to request a STEM Ambassador
Cardiff Radio STEM Ambassador interview
Listen to See Science's Sian Ashton talking on Cardiff in Action – about STEM Ambassadors, the vital role they play and what Ambassadors find that they themselves get out of the programme.
You can request an Ambassador here or contact us directly by email at email@example.com. We will add your request to the Ambassador requests web page and to the STEM Ambassador e-newsletter.
These requests are compiled and sent out monthly to all STEM Ambassadors by email and in an e-newsletter. STEM Ambassadors who are interested and available contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We then email both the teacher and the STEM Ambassador so that they can contact each other directly to finalise arrangements.
