STEM Ambassadors visit Nailsea School

5 March 2015

STEM Ambassadors from Psychology run first information evening at Nailsea School.

On Wednesday 4th February, Jess Brown, a current MSc student, and four other STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) Ambassadors from the School of Experimental Psychology took part in their first information evening at Nailsea School. STEM Ambassadors work with schools, colleges and STEM employers to enable young people of all backgrounds and abilities to meet inspiring role models, understand real world applications of STEM subjects and experience hands-on STEM activities that motivate, inspire and bring learning and career opportunities to life.

Jess summed up the evening with the following:
"Armed with posters, brain models and lots of enthusiasm our aim was to inform and inspire students that approached our stand, aged 7-16, and we did just that! The event was a huge success, as we saw groups of excited students intrigued by the variety of activities that we engaged them with. Our discussions ranged from neuroanatomy to higher education options and we received positive feedback from many parents. I know I can speak for all of us when I say that this event has also inspired us to engage and promote the possibilities that STEM offers at every opportunity."
