Existing STEM Ambassadors

What is the requirement of me as a STEM Ambassador?

Only requirement is to carry out 1 activity per year.  If you carry out any STEM related activity you need to update your activity on your profile.   This is the only way we know whether someone has carried out an activity.

What counts as an activity?

Its quite simple really...   

  • The activity must be FREE of charge to schools and young people.
  • It must be STEM related in some shape or form and
  • Must be aimed at young people ages 3-18.

Where do I log my activity?

On your profile, which can be accessed HERE

What happens if I don't manage to carry out the one activity in a 12 month period?

Quite simply your profile will become inactive and records will be archived, and you will not be able to log in. You will also stop receiving communications from us.  It's important you keep your profile up to date, with activities and also your personal details.
