Research around science capital highlights that there isn’t a single place, action or experience alone that will help improve engagement and equity around STEM. Our booklet pulls together science engagement and science capital research to answer the question, what role can informal learning environments play?

Part of our organisational change series, this post looks at the suite of courses and resources we developed to help communicate the science capital research and embed a science capital approach across our group of museums.
The organisational change series shares our experience and progress to date in applying and embedding a science capital approach across the Science Museum Group. This first post looks at how we began the process.
Today we launched the Science Museum Group Academy – the brand new home for all our science engagement training.
To celebrate International Science Centre and Science Museum day we are launching our new animation about science capital and the informal science sector.
The Enterprising Science research team at University College London and Kings College London have produced a pack of resources based on their research to help teachers engage students with science.
See the latest Enterprising Science project video animation about a science capital teaching approach, broadening what counts in the science classroom and challenging science stereotypes.
As a new school year starts, we look forward to welcoming our school and educational visitors again after the summer break.

Our Science Museum Group vision is for ‘a society that celebrates science, technology and engineering and their impact on our lives, now and in the future’. So why is this such an important cause?
When you feel connected, excited or passionate about something you have experienced or discovered, you want to share and talk about it with other people.
The Building Bridges project has been a 5-year (2012-2017) partnership between the Science Museum and secondary schools from its London partner-boroughs and Reading.
