About the Programme
The STEM Ambassador programme has been launched in Thailand as part of the national directive to promote science and technology studies. IPST is now aiming to recruit STEM Ambassadors each year – professionals, either retired or still employed by universities, government organisations, or working as local experts in agriculture and industry will be encouraged to join the mission.
This initiative is modelled on the UK's STEM Ambassadors, who have been able to reach out to a large number of different educational establishments, both in cities and rural areas.
By working with IPST through the Newton Fund, British Council is helping to support knowledge exchange and partnership opportunities between UK and Thai institutions on STEM Ambassador approaches, in turn building human resource capacity in a vital area for economic development and social well-being.
