As part of the Science and Engineering Ambassadors scheme, about 100 people have now been registered and are being matched to schools. The scheme, announced a year and a half ago by Science Minister Lord Sainsbury, aims to give every school in the UK access to high quality people who can inform and enthuse teachers and students about science, technology, engineering and maths.
