    The Science & Technology Australia STEM Ambassador Program connects STEM professionals with their local MP to help bridge the gap between science and government in Australia.

    For more information check out the Program Outline and the Statement of Expectations

    Applications close midnight, 7 February 2021

    Science & Technology Australia STEM Ambassadors represent electorates across Australia and have been matched with their local MPs from the political spectrum who have expressed a desire to build stronger scientific networks.

    The program encourages the involvement of science in Australian politics and aims to put science and evidence-based policy on the national agenda.

    Each Ambassador will meet regularly with their local MP to build associations between Parliament and the broader STEM sector. It enables federal politicians to gain a deeper understanding of the potential impact of science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) in Australia.

    STA advocates for evidence-based, science-informed policy. The STEM Ambassador Program helps to connect our national decision-makers with scientific experts who can give them direct access to research, data and evidence.

    STA supports and empowers STEM professionals to become effective advocates for their sector, to make positive change, and to use their work to help build better policy and shape Australia’s future.

    Our 24 STEM Ambassadors come from a wide range of science, technology, and engineering mathematics professions, representing a range of sectors. SSA member and Chair of the Statistical Education Section Peter Howley is one of the current STA Ambassadors.
