STEM Ambassadors

The STEM Ambassador Programme is a nationwide scheme dedicated to getting more young people interested in STEM!

The most valuable tool young people have at their disposal when considering future career paths are the people around them, and we believe that STEM Ambassadors can be their greatest source of inspiration.

 

STEM Ambassadors are volunteers with careers in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Maths) or with a passion for STEM subjects.

 

The STEM Ambassador Programme for the North of Scotland is co-ordinated by a team based in Aberdeen Science Centre, with members of staff in Aberdeen, Thurso and Inverness.  So wherever you are and whoever you are you can find someone to help.
