Congratulations to CEO Oliver Farrell who earlier this week received a certificate of recognition for his efforts as a STEM Ambassador across the 2015/2016 academic year.
The certificate recognises Oliver’s dedication to the programme, working closely with STEM on behalf of Farrat to ensure that every young person across the UK has the opportunity to understand the possibilities that science, technology, engineering and mathematics studies and careers can provide.
The impact of the STEM Ambassadors programme is immense – evidence shows that it not only helps young people achieve their full potential in STEM, but also has positive impacts for teachers and other educators as well as individual STEM Ambassadors and employers who support them.
STEM Ambassador’s truly make a difference to young people as well as being part of a UK-wide community of enthusiastic and passionate volunteers.
Since the programme began, STEM Ambassadors have worked with over 94% of UK secondary schools and nearly one in five UK primary schools. STEM now want to build on this further, including engaging with young people and their influencers through a wider range of community and youth groups – ensuring that young people, regardless of background, can see and be encouraged in the possibilities open to them through STEM.
