When thinking about what science capital in practice can mean, we find it helpful to visit other museums and science centres to find good examples of how they engage their audiences.
In November 2017 I was given the opportunity to visit the Museum of Tomorrow in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
To celebrate International Science Centre and Science Museum day we are launching our new animation about science capital and the informal science sector.
I’ve recently attended a training session delivered by the Science Museum’s Enterprising Science project team around science capital and how we can use it in our work.
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.
Science is a social and creative endeavour.
As a new school year starts, we look forward to welcoming our school and educational visitors again after the summer break.
