STEM Ambassador Opportunities

Thanks to funding from STEM Learning, we can offer hands-on science experiences to young people who might otherwise face barriers.

We’re looking for enthusiastic volunteers to mentor young people at our science clubs.

Upcoming opportunities

Our science clubs offer repeat engagement with young people to increase their confidence and passion for STEM-related activities.

We are ideally looking for the same STEM Ambassador to take part in the training and all the sessions with the same group of students so a relationship can be built. However, if you are interested but cannot attend them all, please get in touch as we’d love to hear from you and can share the role across more than one person if necessary.

We would particularly love to work with STEM Ambassadors that have experience or knowledge of these communities, but we welcome interest from anyone with an interest in supporting young people with sensory needs.

Sensory science club for visually impaired young people

Training session: 19th June

Sessions: Friday 24th June and Tuesday 28th June during school hours

 

Sensory science club for hearing impaired or d/Deaf young people

Sessions: Sunday 9 June, Sunday 23 June and Sunday 7 July between 10am – 12pm

 

 

Weekly Science Club for local primary schools

Sessions: every Tuesday during term time between 3pm – 5pm

Interested?

If you’re excited to make a difference, please email us at education@life.org.uk for more information or to sign up.

Can’t make these sessions? No problem! We have more opportunities coming up in the next school year, starting September 2024. Let us know if you’d like to register your interest for next year’s clubs.

If you’re a STEM Ambassador, you can find all these opportunities on the STEM Ambassador portal.
