Encouraging the next generation of science, technology, engineering and maths specialists.
Funded by the Government’s Department for Business, Innovation, and Skills (BIS), the STEM Ambassador programme is about people working in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths), volunteering their time just once a year to enrich and enhance the STEM experience for students in secondary schools. Working with a specialist with real-world experience is an inspiring activity where 49% of pupils who have had contact with a STEM Ambassador want a future job within the STEM sectors.
As professionals in the STEM sector, many of the TRAC team proudly support the STEM Ambassador programme. Graham, Mary and Sarah recently attended a showcase event at Truro College where they got ‘hands on’ with science activities.
Sarah Trethowan, TRAC Director said:
“…The STEM showcase event was an excellent opportunity to share ideas and challenges with teachers and colleagues throughout Cornwall whilst learning about the resources and opportunities available to support STEM Ambassadors. I’m proud that so many of our team continually support this initiative and am glad to see it grow from strength to strength. It really shows how much our team care about being the best at what they do and helping others achieve their potential …”
