STEM Ambassadors can help support and enhance your curriculum and activities in many ways and each STEM Ambassador brings their own unique blend of knowledge and expertise to the session. 

Typical activities include Hands-on Workshops, Subject Talks, Assemblies, Careers Events, Speed Dating, CV workshops, Mock interviews and Employability Skills.
