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.

Between 25 February – 1 March 2016, 200 STEM Ambassadors were trained at Ambassabor Hotel, Bangkok, Thailand. 

These STEM ambassadors will provide knowledge and advice, and share their working experience with students, in order to help teachers and students recognize the values of STEM knowledge and skills in daily and professional life.

After the training, STEM Ambassabors are visiting schools to inspire students about STEM career. 

On 16 March 2016, 8 STEM Ambassadors arranged activities at Princess Chulabhorn College Pathumthani Camp.
