Seminar by Dr Pallavi Banerjee (University of Exeter) "Do STEM schemes work?"

In the United Kingdom, as in virtually every developed country, it is widely accepted that more people studying and working in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) are required at all levels.

During the last decade several schemes were run to support STEM education across schools. How successful have they been? Research findings from a project addressing these questions will be shared. Journal articles from this project have now been published and can be accessed here
