For almost thirty years, we have supported the development of innovative programmes in a number of areas of science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) education.
Since 1990 we have made grants to support science, engineering and maths education totalling more than £170 million. We have piloted new models of teacher training and professional development, developed low-cost curriculum resources and informed national policy.
Today our efforts are broadly concentrated around three Focus Areas:
- Science in Schools: Supporting the teaching of science to all students aged 11-19
- National Initiatives and Partnerships: Supporting a coherent national system of STEM education and career guidance
