Sharing our experience

The Science Museum Group’s philosophy and approach is to ignite curiosity around science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM) by assisting discovery through active participation and social interaction.

As a family of national museums, we have the opportunity to work with audiences both large and small, in on-site and off-site programmes, as well as online. Our ways of working are informed by our Learning Framework, Audience Research & Advocacy, guidance from the ILFA framework that identifies learning outcomes, internal staff training programmes, an understanding of audiences, and an understanding of applied research in informal learning.

Top tips resources
