STEM Case Studies

Many schools may wish to embrace the STEM agenda but are not certain where to start and are not ready to take a whole school approach by using the STEM Planning Tools.

Starting small by working within the STEM subject departments on a particular project can be a good start that then leads to a whole school approach.

The National STEM Learning Centre and Network has supported many of these projects in a variety of ways, some in conjunction with the NCETM. Schools that were supported were required to write a case study of their experience, which is intended as a stimulus for discussion amongst colleagues considering taking a similar approach to developing STEM in their school or college.

The case studies describe the focus area for the project, how it operated in practice, some advice on getting started and an insight into what impact schools identified.

Below are the publications and final reports produced by supported schools.
