STEM Ambassadors are an invaluable and FREE resource for teachers and schools. They offer their time voluntarily to enthuse and inspire students within schools about STEM subjects. They can do this through a variety of activities such as clubs, careers talks, helping with school events, lessons and competitions and much more. Please contact us to find out how we can help you decide how best to employ a STEM Ambassador.


STEM Cumbria would like to hear from you about your STEM Experiences so that our STEM Ambassador volunteers and our Schools get the most out of the STEM interaction that is taking place.


STEMNET have put together a National Feedback survey so that we can understand how Ambassadors and Teachers are finding their experience of STEM all across the country.

We would appreciate it if you could spend a few minutes completing the survey below:


Thank you for taking the time to complete this.


Primary School Activities:

Please click the following links for more information about STEM Curriculum Support Activities we deliver throughout the academic year.

Robotics Workshops: 

The Robotics workshops are a STEM Cumbria led initiative to support delivery of the System and Control elements of the Key Stage 2 ICT curriculum.

Robotics using a Lego NXT‘smart’ brick that can be programmed by a computer, via an infrared tower, using Robotics software.

The software uses simple icons. The brick has three outputs that turn on motors and/or lamps or buzzers, along with three inputs that receive information from, for example, touch or light sensors.      



During the workshop the children will develop their own programmes to move the buggy around the room whilst turning on lamps or buzzers as and when required. It’s really good fun!


The Bright Sparks programme has been successfully delivered to over 19,000 children in Cumbria. The day is targeted at years 5 & 6 pupils but has been successfully delivered to mixed age and ability groups with any combination of pupils from year 3 to year 6.

The Bee-Bot Workshops can be tailored to suit any Year Group from Early Years to year 4.
