MajorTim.space Young Ambassador Programme 2023 – 2024

We’re looking for young people who are passionate about STEM to become our Young Ambassadors for 2023 – 2024.

Our Young Ambassadors take part in a variety of exciting activities, including – conducting interviews with professionals and unboxing a variety of amazing items for our YouTube channel, visiting wonderful places to review them, being guests at some of our events and much more.

It is an opportunity that will look great on your CV.

 

If selected, you will be an Ambassador for one year after which we will elect a new group.

There are three age categories – updated for 2023 – 2024
7-9 years
10-11 years
12-14 years

All entrants will automatically be also judged for our ‘STEM for Her Ambassador’
or
‘STEM for Him Ambassador’ categories.

Each ambassador will receive a t.shirt stating their title.

The Young Ambassadors have fortnightly meetings with the CEO/founder of MajorTim.space, Amelia Jane Piper.   Each meeting has a different speaker or activity.

Plus, the following year when we welcome our new ambassadors, you will help present and pass on the roles – sharing your tips and advice.
