What is an ambassador

An ambassador is someone who helps our community education programme to thrive, inspiring the innovators of tomorrow as we go. They can have a variety of roles - from promoting our activities in schools they already have connections with, to visiting schools to carry out activities, talk about their jobs, why science is important in everyday life and, of course, have lots of fun along the way!

At first, the thought of going into schools to deliver activities to a classroom full of nine year olds can seem a little daunting, but don’t worry – help is at hand!

For those who wish to visit schools, there is lots of help and guidance available on the website and via the current STEM team on how to run one of the Croda Science for Schools activites. They are also on hand to answer any questions you may have, and let you in on the hints and tips we have picked up along the way.

Even with the guidance available the prospect of going into schools and talking to classes of inquisitive nine year olds can be a little daunting, so new ambassadors always have the opportunity to go along to schools with an experienced ambassador until they feel comfortable delivering activities themselves, and then hopefully they will be training the new recruits of the future.
