Testing Science Education

A one-day forum to provide support to science teachers will take place at Carlton House Terrace on 24 November 2006. The workshop aims to address the long-term decline in students taking Physics and Chemistry at A-level by raising awareness of materials science and the career opportunities it affords.

Organised by IOM3 in collaboration with Oxford Materials and The Higher Education Academy UK Centre for Materials Education, the event will establish a working forum to provide resources to teachers of 14-19 year olds to promote science as a fun and appealing subject.

It is hoped that by encouraging young people to continue studying science beyond GCSE, the UK can maintain its position as a world leader in science and technological innovation.
