Coronavirus UpdateCovid
Due to the ongoing situation with Coronavirus (COVID-19), all Hub staff are working from home. If you need to get in touch, please do not phone our office. 
Instead you can email us at ambassadors@worc.ac.uk 

The health and safety of the STEM Ambassadors is our primary concern. STEM Ambassadors should follow the current government guidance which can be found here. 

 If a STEM Ambassador is directed to self-isolate and has attended an activity in the past 14 days, they should inform their STEM Ambassador Hub so that the event organisers can be notified. 
STEM Ambassadors should ensure that their activity records are kept up to date on the STEM Ambassador Website, so that contacts can be traced quickly should the need arise.

Here are some ideas for free resources for home learning, in-school or family activities.

STEM Logo that includes the words AMBASSADOR HUB WEST MIDLANDS

 

The University of Worcester coordinates the West Midlands STEM Ambassador Hub on behalf of STEM Learning.
We work across the Black Country, Birmingham, Solihull, Coventry, Warwickshire, Herefordshire and Worcestershire to offer support and local expertise which helps enhance the STEM experiences for young people in the region.

Much of this STEM enrichment is provided through access to the expertise and enthusiasm of the STEM Ambassador volunteers who share their experiences of applying STEM in business, industry or research with young people in schools, youth and community groups. STEM Ambassador activities include giving subject talks, providing mentoring for project work, supporting STEM Club activities and attending careers events. 

The Ambassadors are passionate about encouraging young people to

  • explore and enrich their STEM experiences,

  • learn about potential careers involving science, technology, engineering, maths and/or computing 

  • extend their own involvement in STEM by continuing study or training. 

Whether you are a teacher,  youth or community group leader, STEM Ambassador or employer, the STEM Ambassador Hub can help you inspire and engage young people.
