Inspiring the next generation

February 07, 2020

STEM Learning  is the largest provider of education and careers support in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) and works with schools, colleges and others across the UK. Within this organisation, STEM Ambassadors are volunteers from a wide range of STEM-related jobs and disciplines who offer their time and enthusiasm to help bring these subjects to life and demonstrate their value as careers.

As a business that provides many STEM-related services, RSK has been encouraging its staff to participate in reaching out and engaging with the next generation by becoming STEM Ambassadors. In fact, Sue Sljivic, one of RSK’s founders, has been one of our most active ambassadors and was recently recognised by STEM Learning for contributing of 50 hours of volunteer time towards the programme.

Currently, RSK has 25 STEM Ambassadors in its ranks, with four more awaiting approval, who have participated in multiple activities supporting this initiative over the years. We have had much success in increasing our numbers in recent years; more than 10 new ambassadors joined the scheme in 2019.

STEM Ambassadors take part in organised activities that can take the form of presentations, workshops, games sessions or mentoring. They can be in a school or a youth centre or at Girl Guide or Scout groups. This commitment can be from as little as one event a year (the minimum required to be an ambassador) to an hour a week in a local school, but it can play a huge part in inspiring young minds.

If you are a school or teacher that would like to utilise STEM Ambassadors in your region, register on the STEM website.
