If you study Science, have a passion for it, and want to gain a qualification that will set you apart from the crowd on your CV and in UCAS applications; then becoming a STEM ambassador is a fantastic opportunity for you. During the programme you will develop a range of management and communication skills and it is also great fun.
In order to meet the criteria for the certificate you would need to show evidence of a minimum of 5 outreach STEM events (examples of where you have delivered STEM events to the wider community) over the course of the year. You would be expected to initially assist me in the delivery of workshops at other schools or external agencies and latterly you will then lead on these yourselves. There is also scope to gain training in mentoring within the science department and to shadow the lab technicians so that you can gain a practical working knowledge of how scientific experiments are prepared.
