Our STEM – science, technology, engineering and maths – Ambassadors are incredible! They give their time freely to inspire young people in STEM. We want you to meet three of our most active STEM Ambassadors.  Please click on their names to read their case studies. It’s fascinating to find out a bit more about them, their background, why they got involved in the STEM Ambassadors programme and how they offer their support.

George Barry Lowe is our most active STEM Ambassador since joining the programme over 15 years ago. He has over 2070 hours recorded, taking part in over 520 activities and working with over 13,670 young people.

Michael Hancock is a relatively new STEM Ambassador but had the most volunteer hours in 2019. Mick is a Engagement Warrant Officer for the British Army and have given has given his time – over 580 hours – to support young people in STEM. This has involved over 65 activities and working with over 7030 young people.

Diane Rodger is Executive Assistant at BASF plc and joined the programme in 2015. In 2019 alone, she supported STEM activities with over 1000 young people.  Diane is dedicated to inspiring young people (particularly girls) in STEM.

In addition, we’ve created some ‘Meet our STEM Ambassadors’ fact-sheets – click on the links below.  These give you information about the STEM Ambassador education/career journeys and their role as STEM Ambassador.  Each STEM Ambassador has also set a student challenge to have a go at – get in touch with what you come up with and the STEM Ambassadors will be happy to provide their feedback.
