Science Capital Teaching Approach

The Science Capital Teaching Approach: Engaging students with science, promoting social justice,  is a support resource from Univeristy College London (UCL) Instiute of Education.  The ideas included in the resource were co developed by UCL, Kings College London and the Science Museum. The ideas were tested over a four-year period between the researchers and secondary science teachers across England. The ideas were designed to aid teachers in supporting children and young people to enage learners more with science and STEM and to help them see the relevance of these subjects to their lives and futures.
