Dear STEM Ambassadors,

We have just finished celebrating National Apprenticeship Week where we hosted our first networking event at Airbus & AMRC in Broughton, and also ran on online session for teachers and pupils where they had the opportunity to talk to current apprentices, those STEM Ambassadors who have completed an apprenticeship and STEM Ambassadors from professional bodies who were in a position to offer information on apprenticeship routes.

Many Ambassadors are hosting events  at Cardiff Science Festival this weekend - please log yor hours on your account or get in touch. 

 We are looking forward to British Science Week in March - if you are involved in an activity then please register your activity with the British Science Association and on your account.

STEM Learning have built two short surveys – one to gather information from STEM Ambassadors themselves, and the other for representatives of employers which have STEM Ambassadors. These will allow STEM Ambassadors and their employers to submit their own case studies about their experience with the STEM Ambassador programme. 


On a more local level if anybody needs any help or support  then please get in touch

See Science  have a facebook page where we will also be sharing lots of new ideas regularly - please like or follow the page.

Please don't hesitate to contact us if we can support the teaching of STEM subjects.

Best wishes

National Apprenticeship Week at Airbus & AMRC

National Apprenticeship Week saw See Science work alongside Airbus to host a day for STEM Ambassadors and teachers at AMRC. We started the day hosting a refresher STEM Ambassador session to those STEM Ambassadors at Airbus. Followed by some Airbus & AMRC apprentices, who joined See Science and ASE to host some teachers CPD. The evening then saw AMRC & Airbus kindly open their doors to let us host a STEM Ambassador networking event which saw STEM Ambassadors from Ipsen, Read Construction and BAE Systems attend. The networking event also welcomed the teachers from the earlier CPD session to stay and meet the STEM Ambassadors that are in their area. The day was enjoyed by all with STEM Ambassadors saying that they found the refresher training useful and hadn’t considered all the types of activities and awareness days/weeks that could be used to engage with the local schools and community.

Read Your Way this World Book Day 2024

Exciting events, activities and partnerships will encourage more children to enjoy reading, however they choose to!

The charity World Book Day® is holding its annual celebration on Thursday 7th March right across the UK and Ireland.

Reading for pleasure improves children’s life chances across a range of social, educational and well-being measures. However, research from National Literacy Trust found that fewer than 1 in 2 (47.8%) children now say they enjoy reading , this is the lowest level since 2005, and reading enjoyment is lowest among children from disadvantaged backgrounds.

Read Your Way calls on everyone to let go of pressure and expectations, giving children a choice – and a chance – to enjoy reading.

One million children in the UK currently do not have a single book of their own at home, and World Book Day’s £1/€1.50 books are often the first book many children will own.

An exclusive title will be available for young readers in Wales. The Welsh Language book supported by the Books Council of Wales, will be Ffeithiau Ffiaidd: Y Corff  written and illustrated by Kev Payne and adapted into Welsh by Mari George, which is published by Rily Publications.

There are numerous resources available here for you to run your own activity in a school or centre  near you 

At the core of the World Book Day’s work to change lives through reading is the opportunity for all children to have a book of their own.

International Pi Day

Pi Day is celebrated on March 14th  around the world. Pi (Greek letter “π”) is the symbol used in mathematics to represent a constant — the ratio of the circumference of a circle to its diameter — which is approximately 3.14159.

Pi Day is an annual opportunity for maths enthusiasts to recite the infinite digits of Pi, talk to their friends about math, and eat pie.

However, the convention of representing it this way actually doesn’t come from Greece at all. It comes from  farmer’s son and largely self-taught mathematician from the small island of Anglesey. The Welsh Government has decided  to rename Pi Day (on March 14 or 3/14, which matches the first three digits of pi, 3.14) as “Pi Day Cymru”.

William Jones was born in 1674 in the parish of Llanfihangel Tre’r Beirdd. After attending a charity school, Jones became a merchant’s accountant and then a maths teacher on a warship, before publishing A New Compendium of the Whole Art of Navigation, his first book in 1702 on the mathematics of navigation

Shortly afterwards he published Synopsis palmariorum matheseos, a summary of the current state of the art developments in mathematics which reflected his own particular interests.

IET Faraday Challenge

Ysgol Uwchradd Tywyn
8th March 2024
Volunteers do not need to have an engineering background.

The Challenge Leader will give you a role on the day. The most common roles for supporters are to help run the shop where students purchase materials, to respond to students’ questions about careers in engineering, to pose questions which enable the teams to reflect on and develop their ideas and provide ‘expert’ advice, if necessary, under the direction of the Challenge Leader, but your role may vary depending on the needs of the day. The day is very intense so there will be no time for you to do a formal presentation, but you may wish to talk to the teachers present about ways in which you could support their school(s) in the future. If you are interested in attending this event please register your interest using the link here or email

Primary Careers Week

Gwauncelyn Primary School, Tonteg
8th March 2024

We were wondering if any STEM Ambassadors would be available to deliver short sessions, talking a little about the career they have and then perhaps holding a short workshop.

This would be held ideally on Friday 8th March.

Engineering: One request would be for an engineer to discuss their field of engineering and hold a workshop for Year 6 on designing/building bridges.
Pneumatics: Another opportunity would be for Year 5 with pneumatics.
Car design: A possibility for Year 3 and below would be someone willing to talk about a career in design, toy or car manufacture as they will be making objects with moving parts. If you are interested in attending this event please register your interest using the link here or email
