Participating in the STEM Ambassador programme is easier than ever via the STEM Ambassador website, designed to put you in control of your STEM Ambassador experience.
How do I use the website to engage with STEM Ambassadors?
You can register and request a STEM Ambassador through the website whenever you want and wherever you are.
STEM Ambassadors are volunteers from a wide range of science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) related jobs and disciplines across the UK. They offer their time and enthusiasm to help bring STEM subjects to life and demonstrate the value of them in life and careers.
Registering and requesting a STEM Ambassador via the website is quick and easy. You can access the website on your smartphone, tablet or PC whenever it's convenient.
