Brunel are planning to open a Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM) Outreach Lab on the ground floor of the Wilfred Brown Building in September 2015. This lab with engage with local school students to get them interested in STEM subjects, using innovative and fun teaching techniques. 

We need students to become our STEM Ambassadors to staff the lab and teach these fun skills. By becoming an ambassador you will be paid to lead activities including welding with chocolate, robot racing, science busking and delivering STEM careers talks to school pupils aged 11 to 14, both in schools and at Brunel.

Students from any discipline and any level are welcome, but we are especially keen on getting those studying any form of engineering, computing, maths or design to take part.

To kickstart the programme, Dr Jane Essex, Lecturer in Science Education, will be running two 50 minute Welding with Chocolate Master-classes, where you learn the intricacies of chocolate welding and more about the programme.

A free lunch (and lots of free chocolate) will be provided.
