Details

The Department for Business, Innovation and Skills (BIS) commissioned research into what science enrichment resources currently exist in the UK that are mainly targeted at adults. Adults are ‘underserved’ in this respect compared to 4-19 years olds.

The research also looked at resources currently aimed at children but that could easily be adapted for use in communities.

A list of resources can be found in the spreadsheet and background and analysis of this can be found in the Powerpoint presentation.
