The STEM Ambassadors in Scotland Hub is a hive of activity over the next short while, and they want you to be involved.
First up, on Monday 15 November from 9.15-10am as part of Book Week Scotland they’d love you to come to their “STOP DROPPING LITTER” event which will include a reading, presentation and Q&A session about sustainability and engineering for learners in P3-P6. The3Engineers team will be showcasing their new series of books raising awareness of environmental issues.
Also in November, their Forestry and Aquaculture in STEM Week is running from the 22nd to the 26th, and will be showcasing the unique people and careers in these sectors, with opportunities to engage with STEM Ambassadors from a range of related careers. Two exciting schools competitions are also being launched so head to their website to find out more.
Not an event but a new resource from the Hub are their Sustainability Cards. Currently featuring over 20 Ambassadors, with more to be added, the cards demonstrate how the work carried out in various roles support the Sustainable Development Goals. There’s also some suggestions of ways the cards could be used with learners.
Lastly they’d love you to save the date in your diary for the next STEM Ambassadors in Scotland Week, taking place in 2022 from 31 January to 6 February. This will be a great chance to hear from and work with Scottish STEM Ambassadors from a huge range of backgrounds and sectors and you won’t want to miss it, make sure to express your interest in being kept up to date with all the details.
