Be a role model

Are you passionate about your work in STEM and keen to inspire the next generation of scientists and engineers? If so, we'd love for you to volunteer with us!

Volunteers play a vital role across our programme, from facilitating activities to being guest speakers and judging student projects.

What's in it for you?

  • A fun and rewarding opportunity to make a difference in young people's lives
  • A chance to build your personal development and network

We are an inclusive organisation; we actively seek volunteers from a range of backgrounds and experiences.

We want young people to see themselves represented in the volunteers who work with us, so we actively encourage volunteers from groups who are currently under-represented in the engineering profession.

It’s really exciting seeing the creativity, passion and determination of the next generation of scientists and engineers, and gives a lot of hope for the future!
