Interested in STEM volunteering?
In collaboration with Entrust and the City Learning Trust, the Vintage Volunteers team are launching an innovative new STEM project. We’re seeking to engage STEM professionals aged 50+ with a wide variety of skills and professional backgrounds to volunteer their time in schools (supporting 11 to 18-year olds) to improve understanding of STEM subjects and increase access to STEM careers.
What does being a STEM Ambassador involve?
STEM Ambassadors will enhance and enrich the learning of STEM subjects by sharing their own interests, skills and experience in STEM with learners. Ambassadors can get involved in a variety of casual activities, all of which can have an impact on young people’s learning and enjoyment of STEM subjects, including:
- Supporting with lessons by bringing real-world problems for pupils to experience and solve
- Giving careers talks or demonstrations
- Helping schools make connections with local employers and industry resources
Want to get involved?
Do you have an interest or background in Science, Technology, Engineering or Maths? Would you be willing to share your skills and experiences as a STEM ambassador? STEM Ambassadors just need to be enthusiastic and passionate about the subject. They do not need to be qualified experts!
If you would like to get involved then contact Project Officer, Kelly Smith, using the details below or maybe pop into the Dudson Centre in Hanley for an informal chat and a brew to find out how you can be involved!
