The IOR has recently joined forces with STEMAZING, an initiative dedicated to promoting STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) and championing diversity and inclusion.

As part of this partnership, three female IOR members will be offered a place at STEMAZING’s training academy which will prepare them to present engaging interactive activities aimed at 7-9-year-olds in the coming year while providing them with additional skills in presentation and public speaking.

The partnership with STEMAZING is one of three IOR initiatives which will be launched in the coming year to engage with young people. The second will be an RACHP Ambassador “tool kit” including equipment to run experiments in schools, books and exercises and a menu of practical activities for inspiration, and a stand/T-shirt/giveaways will be available for use by members in school and career settings. Finally, the existing schools website that features science games for children and careers information will be expanded to cover more advanced topics such as energy efficiency, basic calculations in RACHP and innovation aimed at the 16+ age group.
