Working with schools
Support for schools in central London
We are committed to supporting science, maths and social science-related learning at schools and colleges in Camden, Westminster and Islington.
Our growing community of STEM Ambassadors volunteer to help teachers add extra dimensions to the curriculum and careers education. They can cover a wide range of subjects from medical entomology, virology and parasitology, to epidemiology, health economics and disease-modelling.
If you are a teacher at a central London school looking to arrange a visit from a STEM Ambassador, or a member of staff or student at the School who would like to volunteer in primary and secondary schools, please write to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
