The aim of the STEM Directories is to connect teachers with the wide range of activities in the UK that can help enhance their teaching in science, engineering and maths.
Who runs the STEM directories?
The project is maintained and managed by a consortium comprising of the following organisations and is supported by the Department for Education (DfE).
- The Royal Institution of Great Britain http://www.rigb.org/
- The British Science Association http://www.britishscienceassociation.org/
- UCL – University College London http://www.ucl.ac.uk/
The history of the STEM directories
The directories were originally published in print, in three volumes – one each for Science, Mathematics and Engineering and Technology – in September 2008. The project was led by a strategic management group of key organisations in the UK STEM Community including:
- SCORE Science Community Representing Education http://www.score-education.org/home
- ACME – The Advisory Committee on Mathematics Education http://www.acme-uk.org/
- The Royal Academy of Engineering http://www.raeng.org.uk/
- STEMNET http://www.stemnet.org.uk/
In 2009, the online directories were launched providing an easy way to search schemes and leave reviews.
Hard copies of the Directories are no longer being produced, but if you would like to download a copy of any one or all three of the 2008/9 Directories please use the following links
