STEM Ambassador Spotlights
Update : July 2020
Over the last month we’ve been busy updating our site to help you learn even more about our STEM Ambassadors!
If you’re interesting in having STEM Ambassadors support your work with young people, whether in a school or non-school setting, then you can learn more about the kinds of individuals you can advertise to, the breadth of STEM specialties they represent, as well as some activity suggestions to get you started, by heading to learn about our STEM Ambassadors.
If you’re interested in becoming a STEM Ambassador you can read all about the motivations and experiences of others’ in the STEM Ambassador Stories section.
If you're looking to become a STEM Ambassador at this time, you can still register and complete the online training, but unfortunately we aren’t able to process PVG applications.
