Spring into STEM Days at Margam Country Park

A new initiative in partnership with Margam Country Park was launched for National Science Week.
Following several meetings at the Park two STEM Days took place: Sunday 10th and Monday 11th March. The venue was the Victorian Gothic Castle which provided huge spaces for the exhibition.
On Sunday family groups visited many activities at stands, and despite the rough weather 300 visitors were welcomed.
Over the two days STEM Ambassadors included, Archaeology (Poppy Hodkinson) TT Electronics Marcus Davies and team, DVLA Ambassadors, CITER (Cardiff Institute of Tissue and Repair Kaiya Bartram-Daly), Network Rail, British Computer Society, Jon Laver (Parametrics), Chemistry busking, BAE Systems and Diamond Dust Robots.

The following day (with better weather!) offered a fantastic experience for Ysgol Cwm Brombil and Ysgol Tonnau where 90 pupils visited to take part in the hands on activities. It was an extra bonus to have the amazing ICE Bridges to Schools. A team of 12 Engineer STEM Ambassadors was ably led by Leighton Jones of Atkins Global and Christina Kio of Skanska. The team made wonderful impact, comments from teachers:

“An excellent day - everyone had a great understanding of what they were teaching the pupils.” Teacher Jenny Tomkins
“We would definitely like to be part of this in future”
“We rarely do practical sciences – it shows what can be done if you have knowledge and confidence”
“What a great way to teach Science – fun and inspiring” Margam Park volunteers

Pupils were given STEM cards to take to each stand, STEM Ambassadors handed stickers for the cards when pupils visited an activity and engaged well to add focus to the experience. The best collections were awarded the ‘Golden Bunnies” - though all pupils went away with a reward and treat!

STEM Ambassadors were the key to this superb experience and success.
The Park will be running many event days over the Summer, if you are interested in offering a stand please contact me

Digital Day of success at SPTS!


A new team at SPTS Orbotech aim to raise their profile with local schools STEM Ambassadors have already taken part in a variety of events from local sessions in Primary Schools, Country Park family day to a new site visit experience for local schools.

SPTS Technologies designs manufactures sells and supports advanced wafer-processing technologies for the semi conductor industries. These products are used by manufacturers of ‘Micro Electro Mechanical systems used in smart phones, tablets and game consoles.
The site has ultra strict control of access due to contamination of their products so any site visit must be carefully managed.

St Julian’s and Glasllwych Primary pupils were treated to a fantastic experience. St Julian’s pupils then made a blog video of the day, which speaks for itself!

Following Health and Safety training the 60 visitors were taken on a tour of the manufacturing areas – a very relevant product introduction given the popularity of gaming and mobile technology.
Mini Clean Room suits were available for the pupils, STEM Ambassadors Nick Simmons, Andrew Evans, Anthony Roberts and Carolyn Short also demonstrated vacuum chamber experiments with marshmallows – fun and effective.
Pupils had the chance to use ultra powerful microscopes to look at a fly, a screw and pennies.

‘The event was a major success with all pupils and teachers enjoying the experience and taking part in activities’
Dr Carolyn Short

‘We’re now going to tell everyone in our school about the visit and hopefully encourage pupils to learn more about science and technology. Who knows, some of our pupils may end up working at STPS when they’re older!
A big, gigantic thank you to the staff at SPTS who showed us around and gave up their time to talk to us.’
St Julian’s pupils


First Careers Day in Bridgend with Finning UK

 Brynteg School Bridgend held their first fantastic careers day for Yr 9 pupils introducing a showcase of local Employers.

STEM Ambassador Tim Ballard developed a stand for his employer, Finning sells, rent and provides parts and service for equipment and engines to customers in various industries, including mining, construction, petroleum, forestry and a wide range of power systems applications.

Most are large scale industrial parts, Tim and his colleagues were able to use VR to showcase the products and many other hands on attractions which were of huge appeal for hard to convey topics.
Ambassadors reported that the event had a very high impact on Employer profile and the event was badged with 5 star excellence rating!

Hi Sian,
Just to say thank you for the opportunity to engage with the school at Brynteg Bridgend.  It was an enjoyable (& busy) day with huge participation from the school.  Attached a few pics of my colleague (Chris) holding an audience.
Our VR headset and plasma ball were a real draw to the stand!
Tim Ballard”

“A huge thank you to all our employers, universities and contributors that helped make today’s first ever Careers Fair such a resounding success. You helped create a real buzz of enthusiasm around @BryntegSchool throughout the day.”
Brynteg Careers Coordinators

Rhiwbina Beavers earn a treat of STEM Ambassadors!


Beaver Leader Stephen James wished to add value to their Science Badge activities – the Beavers were not disappointed! 4 STEM Ambassadors delivered sessions: Rachel Taylor, Rachael Moses, Alun Armstrong and Edward Gait-Carr

Alun Armstrong describes his session below

On Wednesday this week I was with the Rhiwbina Beavers.  20 young lads age 6 - 8.  They wanted help to earn their Science Badges.   
I did a session on the properties of the atmosphere on planet earth  (air!).
Four teams of five and four tables each with lots of little "experiments" .   We covered the following properties :

Chemical composition tea light on a small platform floating in a bowl of water and covered by a one litre clear plastic bottle with the bottom cut off.   When the oxygen had all been used up the candle went out and the water had risen in the bottle .

Thermal properties :  paper spiral suspended above a tea light by a cotton thread rotating in the convection current .   Dash of hot water in plastic milk bottle  - shake bottle and the expansion of the air inflated  the bottle - then a dash of cold water and a shake and the air contracts sucking the walls of the bottle in etc.

Air pressure :  covering glass of water with card and then inverting

Resistance of air: running with umbrella down and then with umbrella up, parachutes, spinning tops (made from a milk bottle top and a pencil stub) and then again with little pieces of post its stuck on
Aerodynamics: Paper planes and  helicopters, cardboard  boomerangs, little throwing arrow with and without flights

‘Alun What a great night it was tonight with lots of happy Beaver Scouts.  It was such a fun and beneficial experience - lots of excited chats in the foyer at the end to their parents.
Enjoy the chocolates - remember to share. And thanks so much for your kind gift
I hope we meet again sometime.  Let us know if you want to try out some new things!’

Stephen James

Dr Rachael Moses and Edward Gait Carr of CITER (Cardiff institute of Tissue and Repair) followed with 2 fantastic sessions again achieving a superb impact

‘Just you know that both sessions were superb and we were very lucky to have them.  8 experiments in 2 weeks and they were all about different areas so a great mix.  Dr Moses and team presented the science experiment badges too last week.  I have sent thank you messages for both weeks and all were presented with a gift by one of the Beaver Scouts on the night.

Thank you too for helping to organise - a fantastic experience for all.’
Stephen James
Lion and Riverkings Leader

A Roller Coaster Ride with Ysgol Bryn Clwyd


Your STEM Ambassador Hub has a wide range of practical resources available for loan. One kit was put to very good use by Ysgol Bryn Clwyd Denbighshire as part of their Forces project on Theme Park Rides. Assistant HeadTeacher Vicky Lyons contacted me for local of the kit and most importantly the input of a STEM Ambassador to extend the knowledge and experience for her pupils.

The kit uses KNEX to build and test the forces on a carriage, each ride is assembled by pupils.

David Hinchliffe is a Financial Controller at Magnox and kindly took on the request.

Following a very successful visit David reported
“I thoroughly enjoyed my visit to the school and was impressed with the enthusiasm and interest shown by all the pupils I met. We all had a very entertaining morning.”
