Primary Science Development Officer (PSDOs) from across the Raising Aspirations in Science Education (RAiSE) network have shared case studies of initiatives undertaken across the country to develop engaging and motivating STEM opportunities for learners.
RAiSE is a programme of The Wood Foundation, Education Scotland, Scottish Government and participating local authorities which delivers professional learning, promotes opportunities and develops networks to promote enhanced STEM learning and teaching in primary schools.
These case studies are available to read and download on Education Scotland’s National Improvement Hub.
Gayle Duffus, National Education Officer leading RAiSE, said:
“These case studies provide examples of practice that could be replicated across other settings; highlight the planning, resource implications and impact of work undertaken so that practitioners could be inspired to deliver something adapted to suit their context.
“Collaboration, networks and a willingness to share best practice are integral parts of the RAiSE programme. By sharing these case studies, we hope to promote this value and stimulate further inspiration for primary practitioners.”
The case studies are available here and will be regularly updated.
