This session will bring together large and small organisations who provide Science and Engineering outreach and engagement opportunities. It provides a vivid chance to hear about practice and aspirations for the future, from which we can drive strategy both individually and collectively to make a difference.
The key focus will be: how can we help schools make a real difference to the teaching and learning of science and engineering, how can we maximise effectiveness?
This consultation is of key relevance to Greater Manchester as it grows into the Northern Powerhouse, it will need to tackle head on the issue of a throughput of qualified scientists and engineers, especially girls, emerging from our education system
