    • Registration details/Further information:
      • Recruitment of Maritime Ambassadors, particularly female STEM representatives for an event in Rosyth on the 23rd January. In line with the Maritime 2050 strategy, there is a particular interest in shoreside roles as they are looking to showcase the range of careers in maritime that young people wouldn’t necessarily already be informed about.
      • Refreshments and lunches are provided for all volunteers across the day, and a briefing conference call will be conducted one week prior to the event. Call time is 08:30 for an on-site briefing and venue walk through, then they’ll be free to leave by 3pm.
      • A short blurb is required (100 words fine) from each ambassador that signs up, this helps assign roles on the day (general ambassador, workshop specific linked with their background, role model for networking, interviewed for panel)
      • There is a particular push for female representatives as we need to fill 15x spaces at each event for the face to face speed networking where industry role models engage on rotation with the students as a session. However, male ambassadors are also invaluable and more than welcome to attend and add value – so please do note that it is open to all!

  • I’m a scientist, stay at home! Project
    • UK Research and Innovation is excited to be funding  I’m a Scientist, Stay at Home! which is running throughout the summer term until 20 July. The project is enabling school pupils to engage with active researchers and staff to provide inspiring STEM lessons for pupils as they are taught at home during the school closures. Pupils engage in online text chats where they can ask scientists questions and find out about their work. Pupils then vote for their favourite researcher at the end. UKRI funding is enabling I’m a Scientist to expand its online platform to reach over 1,200 schools and 140,000 pupils over the summer term
    • We’re looking for UKRI-funded researchers and staff to take part. It’s a great way for you to hone your communication skills and inspire the next generation about research. If you would like to find out more and sign up to take part, please visit here.
