STEM Ambassadors work with young people to bring STEM subjects alive through real life experiences. They are volunteers aged 17 and upwards, representing a vast range of STEM-related jobs across the UK. Our Ambassadors include apprentices, zoologists, set designers, climate change scientists, engineers, farmers, geologists, nuclear physicists and architects.
They help to open the doors to a world of opportunities and possibilities which come from pursuing STEM subjects and careers.
They not only inspire young people; they also support teachers in the classroom by explaining current applications of STEM in industry or research.
STEM Ambassadors work with young people to bring STEM subjects alive through real life experiences.
The 3 Scottish Hubs are in a network of 19 Hubs that manage the volunteering opportunities for the UK’s 33,000 registered STEM Ambassadors. The network is managed by the National STEM Learning Centre and Network, which works to enable more young people to enjoy, achieve and progress in STEM subjects and STEM related careers.
SSERC is the liaison lead for the Scottish hubs.

We are also recruiting Forestry Ambassadors to represent a wide variety of careers from across the industry including rangers, tree surgeons, harvesting managers, sawmill workers, ecologists and many other roles that young people may not readily associate with forestry.
