Project dates: 2019-2020
Funder: Education Scotland via Enhancing Professional Learning in STEM

Education Scotland Strategic Director Alan Armstrong, said: “This funding will be invaluable for enhancing the professional learning available to all practitioners involved in STEM-related learning, teaching and assessment. We received an overwhelming number of bids which shows the real priority practitioners place on developing their skills to help improve their learners’ STEM experiences.”

Katie Rudge, Education Officer for FSC Scotland said: “I am excited by the opportunity to bring nature, STEM skills, and Learning for Sustainability to life for teachers in Tayside and to hopefully engage with practitioners that may not be able to visit FSC Centres.”

John Muir Trust Scotland Education Manager Rebecca Logsdon said: “The John Muir Trust has inclusion as a core part of its mission to help people of all ages and backgrounds connect with, enjoy and care for wild places. STEM By Nature is another approach that helps make connections between learning, teaching, and the natural environment.

“The Trust welcomes the opportunity to work in partnership with the Field Studies Council to build on its delivery against policy drivers including equity and attainment, Learning for Sustainability, STEM and Improving Gender Balance. This pilot provides inclusive opportunities with a lasting impact for practitioners, learners and the wider community”.
