    Mentors and ambassadors for projects?

      Hi all,

       

      Mentors for projects came up in one of our shop talks and I was curious to hear about other approaches that countries have...

       

      We have a national scheme for ambassadors - recently renamed to be called STEM Ambassadors. There are over 18,000 vounteers in the UK registered to support Science Technology, Engineering and Maths with young people - the next target is 25,000. There's more info at http://www.stemnet.org.uk/ambassadors.cfm They come from business, industry and higher education - or may just be enthusiasts.

       

      Do other coutries operate such a system?
