STEM Ambassadors are volunteers from a wide range of science, technology, engineering and mathematic (STEM) related professions. Ambassadors offer their time and enthusiasm to bring STEM subjects to life for young people and help demonstrate their value. They engage and inspire by working with schools and other organisations supporting a variety of activities including assemblies, lessons, STEM clubs, careers activities and large events and fairs. Find out more about the STEM Ambassador scheme.
This workshop, hosted by the IES, and STEM Ambassador Coordinator Natalie Cheung, will give you an insight into the opportunities available to you as a STEM Ambassador and support you on how to have the most impact through your new Ambassador position and champion STEM careers and opportunities.
This event is open to IES members who have completed all 6 stages of the Ambassador training process below. If you are not yet registered as a STEM ambassador, make sure you start the process as soon as possible as this can take up to six weeks to complete.
Only 23 places available.
