We’re working to transform the teaching of science in primary schools so that every pupil has an excellent first experience of science.
We support governors and trustees to ensure their schools and colleges deliver high-quality science education.
Informal learning experiences – like visiting museums, meeting scientists, watching YouTube videos and playing games – offer huge potential for young people to engage with and learn about science in a way that works for them.
We can use knowledge about how people learn to develop and test evidence-informed teaching practices that help young people achieve more at school.
Our Science Education Tracker is a survey of young people’s attitudes towards and experiences of science education and careers.
We’re committed to supporting and improving practical science in schools and colleges.
