Coronavirus impact on BAE Systems’ UK education outreach programmes
In line with the UK Government’s developing guidance for the Covid-19 pandemic, at BAE Systems we have been reviewing our 2020 education outreach activity.
To help protect the health and wellbeing of everyone as much as possible, we have decided to suspend all our education outreach including our schools roadshow programme and work experience placements. We are sorry to have disappointing news but our teams will continue to monitor this unprecedented situation and we will resume our education outreach when it is safe to do so.
Over 400 BAE Systems employees working in science, technology, engineering and maths related jobs are trained STEM Ambassadors. They offer their expertise to inspire young people and bring to life the value of STEM subjects in careers and the wider world.
If you’re a teacher, college tutor or community group leader and would like one of our STEM Ambassadors to take part in a careers fair or an event alongside other organisations, you can make a request through our partners, STEM Learning.
If you’re interested in a dedicated visit by a BAE Systems STEM Ambassador for a careers talk or to support an engineering or classroom-related activity, please email full details of your request to:
The BAE Systems Schools Roadshow – supported by the Royal Navy and the Royal Air Force – visits over 420 schools across the UK every year. It provides an interactive experience for students aged 10 to 13 years old in primary and secondary schools, which is designed to inspire excitement in STEM subjects. The programme changes each year to reflect specific curriculum elements, and delivers fun, engaging activities that demonstrate how STEM underpins everything that we do. Previous programmes have included:
- It’s a Numbers Game - shows how and why maths is a critical aspect of engineering, technology and design.
- Who is in Control? - explores how computing and engineering are inextricably linked and how they rely on each other.
- Waves - links physics and engineering across a range of different topics; Sound Waves, Light Waves and the physical properties of Waves in Water.

The Roadshow tour areas are mapped out during the autumn term for the following calendar year. If your school is interested in being part of the tour, then contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org
with your school address, phone number, contact name and email address.
Once we know when we are due to be in your area, we will send you an invitation to apply with the specific dates. Places for the Schools Roadshow are limited so we advise you to contact us as early as possible.
After a visit by the Roadshow Team, our STEM Ambassadors can work with schools to deliver follow-up activities and provide more detailed careers information. To request support from a STEM Ambassador please contact us at email@example.com
