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.

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?
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.
Whether it is on a school visit, as a family day out, or maybe through an experience online, there are many different reasons why people come to museums.
When designing learning resources, activities and events as part of the Enterprising Science project, we have repeatedly tried to create connections between science and students’ homes, families and local communities.
Understanding what influences a person’s science capital is essential to the research.
The Science Museum Group is piloting an auditing tool to help us reflect on our current offer and shape the design of our experiences and resources.
Science capital is a concept which gives us a valuable insight into why and how some people participate in and engage with STEM related experiences – and why some do not.
The Transforming Practice blog is written by practitioners, for practitioners, to reflect on what research into STEM engagement means for our day-to-day practice.
