The STEM Ambassadors scheme supports I’m a Scientist, Get me out of here.

The STEM Ambassador programme volunteers work with young people in schools and in the community to inspire the next generation from all backgrounds to explore STEM and consider the diverse range of careers in STEM, research and innovation.

There are over 30,000 individuals who offer their time, passion, and energy to visit schools, colleges, and youth group organisations to deliver requests from teachers and youth group leaders who want to link STEM subjects to the real world of work.

Students get to:

  • Learn about up to 30 relevant scientists, through their profiles, including their CVs
  • Connect with researchers in 30-minute, text-based, online Chats
  • Deepen their understanding and continue engaging with the scientists by sending follow-up questions
  • Decide which scientist deserves the £500 winner’s prize
  • Review their learning through a facilitated discussion

We’ll email you giving you access to all available activities.
