About the Event
Join our information session to find out more about our Our Upskill and Engage Programme, suitable for all Early and First Level practitioners in Scotland.
The programme will target early intervention from STEM Ambassadors in Primary Schools to help young people to increase their STEM Capital from an early age and create sustained and meaningful engagements for young people across Scotland.
STEM Ambassadors coming into a classroom has been shown to raise STEM Capital, provide positive STEM role models and help to bring STEM subjects to live, however we know how important it is for our ambassadors to be able to engage correctly for the age and stage of their young audience.
Successful schools will have access to an information session led by Dr Richard Holmes lecture in Education at Dundee University on how to make the most of STEM Ambassadors in the classroom, but more importantly...
Your class will be matched to a nearby ambassador who will come into the classroom to deliver a series of 3 activities throughout April - June 2023, encouraging discussion of STEM topics and linking them to their career.
This informal information session will give you an opportunity to ask any questions and find out more about the programme and how to apply.
