Working Towards a Better Tomorrow
The STEM NOW team at Winchester Science Centre coordinates the STEM Ambassador Hub Central South England to help inspire young people in science, technology, engineering and mathematics.
STEM Ambassadors cross all ages and backgrounds, representing thousands of different employers across the UK. Our Ambassadors include apprentices, zoologists, set designers, climate change scientists, engineers, farmers, geologists, nuclear physicists, and architects. They help to open the doors to a world of opportunities and possibilities which come from pursuing STEM subjects and careers. They not only inspire young people; they also support teachers in the classroom by explaining current applications of STEM in industry or research.
“It has been a fantastic learning experience for me as a teacher. I would encourage others to say "Yes, I'll do it" and jump in at the deep end. It's amazing how others help you float. The Ambassadors were modest about their own knowledge and talents. The students warmed to them straight away whilst building self-esteem and excellent team-working skills. This will benefit them in any career choice” A STEM Teacher
