Would you like to join our fantastic team of STEM volunteers and inspire young people in schools and colleges about STEM careers?

Registering as a STEM Ambassador involves 3 steps and requires a commitment to support at least 1 event a year:

We’ll support you throughout the process and ensure you have all you need to get started.
