STEM Ambassadors are volunteers who go into local schools, colleges and youth and community groups to support learning.
19 schools in Orkney are able to equip pupils with a range of items which will support STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) subjects.
On Friday 6 November 2020, 11 life scientists and science communicators, and 11 mathematicians and computer scientists, from across the world, were recognised for their scientific achievements and the work they do to promote STEM for the next generation.
In traditionally male-dominated fields, such as STEM (for science, technology, engineering and mathematics), only two of every ten positions are occupied by women.
As part of the celebrations to mark British Science Week, Robert Gordon University brought together organisations from across Orkney for pupils to take part in an interactive exhibition of science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM).
