*Opportunity for postgraduate students and academic members of staff*

Be part of an innovative educational project!

Would you like to share your research and expertise with young learners in Greater Manchester primary schools?

Are you looking to enhance your communication skills in an engaging and relevant way, supporting schools in the local area?

The Science & Engineering Education Research and Innovation Hub (SEERIH), in partnership with the Central Widening Participation Team and the Museum of Science & Industry, is looking to recruit several STEM Ambassadors to take part in a short project working with primary schools in Greater Manchester from April-August 2015.

This is a fantastic opportunity, open to postgraduate students and academic members of staff, to share your research and passion for studying a STEM discipline, whilst developing your communication and presentation skills, and supporting primary school teachers to enliven and inspire children when learning Science, Design Technology, Computer Science and Maths.

Successful applicants will be asked to commit 3-4 days within the project. This will involve taking part in a bespoke STEM Ambassador Training Programme before collaborating with an innovative primary teacher to complete a short school placement in a local primary school during the summer term. Following the placement ambassadors will help evaluate the effectiveness of the training and the placement.

Full details of the opportunity are available here including how to make an application.  The deadline to apply is Friday 8 May 2015.
