Choosing Science research

STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) partnership

Recruitment to the areas of science and technology is declining in some colleges and universities. Rather that focus on the negative reasons for this (e.g. disengagement of individuals) this piece of research aims to identify what factors actually influence young people to further pursue these subjects.

The research used questionnaires to work with young people studying sciences at school, college and university. The results of the research will help to inform the design of new initiatives to encourage uptake to science subjects by individuals from non-traditional backgrounds.

The results of the research will be published on the website materials section when it goes live soon
