We are looking for an enthusiastic and dynamic individual to help bring STEAM to life for local children. HCA are excited to be developing a new creative STEAM outreach programme on two local estates. The STEAM Project Coordinator role will lead on the development and delivery of our new Street Engineers project, as well as our Food Scientists events, both aimed at disadvantaged children aged 7-12 in two local estates in Holborn, London. 

With a focus on engaging local engineers as volunteers to support disadvantaged children to get involved with applied science and engineering, Street Engineers will encourage children to look at issues in their area, and develop their own innovative, creative solutions.

Similarly the Food Scientists programme will support children to find the science on their plates through a programme of hands-on, creative and food focused STEM events. 

We are looking for a confident project leader, with experience of project management, volunteer coordination, community outreach and hands on project delivery. You will be enthusiastic and knowledgeable about STEAM subjects, and be able to translate this into engaging co-produced projects for children and young people. 

We are particularly keen to hear from candidates from groups that are traditionally underrepresented in STEAM, including people from BAME backgrounds and those who are female identifying.
