National STEM Learning Centre program

Inspiring Young People In STEM

Develop your volunteering skills and STEM activities for young people with a program of flexible courses from STEM Ambassadors

Inspiring Young People In STEM

Inspire a love of science, technology, engineering and maths in young people

These courses are free to join. Many volunteers may struggle to engage young people with exciting activities in STEM subjects. However, with advice from STEM Ambassador Hubs, volunteers and educators, this program of short, flexible courses will support you in engaging and inspiring children and young people in STEM.

You will learn how to plan and carry out effective STEM activities, exploring: diversity, communicating with young people and using feedback to improve your activity and performance. Ultimately, these courses aim to equip you with the skills and confidence to inspire young people in STEM subjects and careers.
