Description of the contract

The BIS Science and Society team are commissioning a piece of research into where teachers look for information on Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) interventions. As part of the Science & Society review 2012/13, we invited our stakeholders to help revise our vision, aims and activities. We held several workshops with different groups of stakeholders and a common theme emerged which centred on: • the number of different STEM interventions and public engagement activities; • the lack of time that teachers have to navigate through the current sources available to find what they need. Please refer to the attached documentation for the full specification.
