STEM Education – Visions of Integration and Synergy

Published 3rd December 2015

‘The ability of people to understand the world in which they live and work increasingly depends on their understanding of scientific ideas and associated technologies and social questions. For most people such understanding will come mainly through education.’ Sir Paul Nurse, President of the Royal Society 

The University of Roehampton is pleased to present a conference examining leading practice in drawing the best of science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) education together.

The conference will be aimed at practitioners in schools and colleges as well as those involved with initial and on-going teacher development and STEM education policy.

The speakers are all experienced practitioners who will draw upon their experience, current research evidence and policy to illustrate a vision of 21st century STEM education.

The conference will also offer insights into the ways in which teachers might help the ambitious Royal Society ‘Vision’ for science and mathematics education take shape.
