This week I got an e-mail with the certificate below. It’s a nice little gesture from STEM learning and STEM ambassadors UK to all who volunteer their time to educate and inspire others. Although I’ve done many more activities that could not be added because they were outside the UK, what counts is the work we do and the lives we touch. There’s nothing more rewarding than seeing that audience beaming with curiosity and enthusiasm at the beginning and those faces lighting up when they learn something new or have a go at an experiment themselves and see the results. STEM ambassadors are meant to go out there and inspire people, but I think that most times we end up being inspired by our audience as well. We do this for them, and their response encourages us to keep doing more and better each time.
