STEM Strategy 2017

SCRR seminar

February 24, 2017 • 1pm

Venue: Salisbury Suite, Our Dynamic Earth, Edinburgh

An SCRR seminar around the Scottish Government’s draft strategy for STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) education will be held on Friday, February 24, 2017 to:

  • provide a forum to increase awareness of the strategy and to discuss issues raised by it;
  • learn more of the challenges facing teachers in bringing real world science issues into the classroom;
  • see examples of initiatives currently being delivered.

All members of SCRR are concerned with demonstrating the impact of their research, a key part of which is engagement with schools and wider communities in which they live and work.

This seminar will help us all to understand current developments and consider strategies and actions for co-ordinated engagement.
