Record a video

What you have achieved is inspiring – share your story.

Your story, you journey could be just what a young person needs to hear to inspire them to start their very own STEM adventure.

What you have achieved and how you got there is interesting and unique. Something that you share might be the spark that ignites an aspiration in a pupil wondering what STEM opportunities are out there for someone like them.

Recording a video is pain free – we promise. We provide the guidance and template needed ensuring that the process is easy, straightforward and time efficient.

If you would like to speak with us about what would be involved in recording a video, please get in touch.

Volunteer at an event

Volunteer or speak at an event – your involvement matters.

If, like us, you are passionate about STEM and work in any STEM field, or have a STEM related academic background, please speak with us about getting involved with one of our events.

We deliver online and in person events with an audience that can range from 10 to 300 young people, working with a range of STEM volunteers to make these events as interesting and stimulating as possible.

We look for those doing unusual STEM roles, experts in the specific fields and even those just starting out on their own STEM journey. But the main attribute that we look for in someone getting involved with our events is a SmartSTEMs level of enthusiasm about inspiring children and young people in all things STEM.

The involvement can be as big or as small, as loud or as quiet, as you see fit. If you would like to know about what would be involved, please get in touch.

Corporate Sponsorship also enables SmartSTEMs to deliver more events across more locations to more children and young people.

We will work with your team to ensure any sponsorship package is tailored to meet your needs, whether that includes supporting schools in your local community, providing equipment for workshops, or widening brand awareness across the country, all whilst helping to securing your future talent pipeline.

Current and previous sponsors include JP Morgan, Scottish Power, Scottish Water, Commsworld and Howden.

Helping as an educator

Become and advocate

Stimulate STEM subject discussion in your classroom.

While much of our focus at SmartSTEMs is on inspiring children and young people around all things STEM, we are similarly committed to supporting our teachers to deliver well informed STEM subjects. We know how impactful the enthusiastic delivery of a STEM topic can be on a pupil and we are looking for more teachers to partner with is to bring more stimulating STEM discussion to the classroom.

Please visit our YouTube channel for useful resources and interesting topic discussion points for use in your classroom.

We would also welcome the opportunity to link in with your school to see if we could deliver an event or support your current STEM activities.
