“You can see exhibitions about engineering, you can be told about it, you can look at pictures, watch videos and read books, but until you’ve had a go yourself you haven’t experienced the thrill of it! At first I was interested. Now I’m addicted.”
Peter Jones, A level student
STEMNET works with primary schools across the UK by helping young people and their teachers make links with STEM professionals in their area.
As a teacher, you can access support from thousands of volunteers with STEM backgrounds through the STEM Ambassadors programme.
STEMNET manages this national network of enthusiastic and inspiring role models and volunteers, who can help you to excite and inspire students in STEM.
All STEM Ambassadors have a STEM background, they are usually professionals and experts in their field, providing you with a free, skilled resource, to support you in the classroom.
Each STEM Ambassador is registered, trained and checked with the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) in England, Wales and Northern Ireland or the Protecting Vulnerable Groups (PVG) Scheme in Scotland.
Our local network can help determine how your school can most benefit from involvement with a STEM Ambassador and match your school or activity to the right volunteer for your requirements.
