The discussion will cover STEMNET national projects, their aims and goals, and how members can become involved. They will also discuss the Black Country Project - what is being done locally in the BC to support the sciences in education, and will also highlight the Amazing STEM Careers available to prospective students, including an outline of an interactive careers package used in schools and colleges.

The discussion will end with how members can support STEM objectives and get involved in the project (only if they want too!)

Throughout we will draw links to the interests of members.

We have 450 Stem Ambassadors working in the BC and it will be great to share the successes of the project and what else we are planning.
