The team is diversely made up with people from different educational backgrounds and careers, all ages and gender, but the one thing in common is the passion to see a school, community group or any individual encouraged to seek and experience success through STEM.
STEM Aware staff and volunteers are processed with appropriate clearance procedures for working with children and vulnerable groups. They also are trained and adhere to all company policies including Child Protection.
“Having four young children myself I wanted to learn how they learn, how could I support them as a parent, how could I do this better, this is what led me to where I am today. My children are so rich to have my industry experience at their disposal and hence as I shared this in their school, here the business began and it has since evolved into what it is today. We have grown in staff numbers, academic and industry experience, we have a great team work ethos and a real passion and joy for what we do.”
