Rail Week STEM Ambassadors are volunteers from the rail industry who are keen to help give young people a better appreciation of what a STEM-related career in the rail sector looks like.
All STEM Ambassadors are registered and approved by STEMNET which means that you can be assured that they have undergone a 2-3 hour induction session and passed a criminal records check (DBS or PVG). See the STEMNET website for full details about the STEM Ambassadors Programme:
Rail Week STEM Ambassadors are available to assist teachers with any rail-related event that your school might want to run. They could give an assembly talk, assist in a lesson, deliver a hands-on activity of some kind, or perhaps take part in a rail-related careers event.
Volunteers are provided with resource packs designed to support the following activities. Why not invite them in to deliver one in your lesson?
Request a Rail Week STEM Ambassador
If you are a teacher and would like a STEM Ambassador to visit your school as part of Rail Week, please fill in the form below, giving as much detail of your requirements as possible.
Your request will be passed on to our partner, STEMNET, who will try to find a suitable volunteer to assist with your event.
Please note that STEM Ambassadors are volunteers and should be supported by a teacher at all times while visiting your school. STEMNET cannot guarantee availability at your event – but they will do their best!
