The Rosalind Franklin STEM Ambassadors is… 

a Royal Society Rosalind Franklin Award project to raise the profile of women in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM). Twenty year 11 girls with promising futures from backgrounds currently underrepresented in STEM careers will attend a two-day workshop at University College London (UCL) in September 2018. The workshop will cover skills critical for obtaining study and employment opportunities in STEM including training in communication skills, the opportunity to meet STEM role models, and follow-up mentoring support. Everything from personal statement tips to short lectures introducing various science careers to presentation training and guidance on writing lab reports will be covered. Digital content will be created during the workshop and shared here, on the web resource, to aid each girl in sharing her experience with her peers as a STEM career ambassador.
