In partnership with STEM Learning, the Royal Astronomical Society has rolled out a new RAS Fellows STEM Ambassadors webpage on the STEM Learning website in an effort to widen our reach in the UK with our Fellows. In 2022, we also worked with our Council members to improve our RAS education and outreach strategy to involve our RAS Fellows more. This event combines both those recent changes, and in an effort to reach out to our Fellows, we invite you to get involved - we want to work with you.

Join us online Wednesday, 27 September from 4-5pm where we will share information on the RAS STEM Ambassador Programme, share our new strategy, learn some tips and techniques to work with young people, and demonstrate some activities you can do as a STEM Ambassador. We will also open up a discussion on our new strategy, ask for your feedback and conduct a Q&A. We want to hear from you.
