The report builds on the findings of the first report, and looks forward to the next, third phase of ASPIRES (ASPIRES 3).
ASPIRES 2 was a large, national mixed methods project which investigated young people’s science and career aspirations from ages 14 to 19. The study extended previous research, conducted with the same cohort of young people, who took part in the first ASPIRES project at ages 10 to 14.
ASPIRES 2 provides an authoritative and valuable source of evidence as to how young people view science (and STEM), how these views change over time and offering insights into key factors that influence their views and aspirations.
In particular, it provides fresh insights into factors shaping young people’s STEM participation and why existing participation patterns are so resistant to change.
