Dear STEM Ambassador

We have now reached the magnificent total of 1000 STEM ambassadors, registered across Wales.

As you can imagine keeping such a wide and diverse family informed and united as a network is a challenge and therefore we hope you will make good use of this newsletter as well as regular contact with Cerys Terry and me. We would really encourage and welcome feedback about the content and appearance of the newsletter as it is a resource for yourself and the schools. You can send your comments to us at

Please don’t forget to let us know before you attend a school or event as an ambassador, so that you are fully covered by the STEMNET insurance. We also know that many of you have been active but this has not always been visible – largely because logging activities has proved difficult, so a ‘how to’ summary is attached below.
