Think back to when you were at school and imagine what it would have been like to have had a Nobel-winning scientist come to your class, or a world-renowned mathematician?
This has been a reality for many students around the county, and it’s all thanks to over 2,500 teachers and STEM professionals who volunteer their time – in addition to their day jobs we might add – to bring science to life in classroom.
So without further ado, meet just a few of our volunteer heroes who are spreading the science-love at a school near you! Click on your favourite Teacher or STEM professional to find out what inspired them to take part in the SMiS program.
