Description

Join us at the Institution of Mechanical Engineers for an exciting STEM training workshop delivered by the National STEM Learning Network.

Who are STEM Ambassadors and what do they do?

STEM Ambassadors are volunteers from a wide range of science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) related jobs and interests. Aged 17 upwards, they offer their time and enthusiasm to bring STEM subjects to life for young people and help demonstrate their value.

The programme operates nationally and there are more than 3000 STEM Ambassadors across London. 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. 

Further information about STEM Ambassadors can be found here.
