This report, published in March 2012 by the National Foundation for Educational Research,
presents the findings of an evaluation of the Wellcome Trust’s Camden Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) Initiative which provided funding to eight Camden schools to develop interdisciplinary projects. Projects spanned the two academic years 2009/10 and 2010/11, with most schools starting planning and delivery in the spring and summer term of 2009.

Two key delivery models were used:
• the development and piloting of new schemes of work
• the development and delivery of enhancement and enrichment activities (for example, a themed day or series of themed days,a dedicated STEM week, after-school STEM clubs, visits out of school and visits in school from STEM Ambassadors)
