Learn about the Youth Equity + STEM (YESTEM) project and our new suite of tools and resources for practitioners from the research team. Hear from practitioners about their experiences of being involved in the partnership and their equitable practice.

Join a conversation about the future of UK informal science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) learning and how we can embed equity and social justice at the heart of UK Informal STEM Learning (ISL) policy and practice.

This event will be particularly useful for those interested in ISL and equity.


There will be contributions from Professor Louise Archer (UCL Institute of Education) and Professor Angela Calabrese Barton (University of Michigan).

As well as discussion with project partners from:

  • Stemettes (Anne Marie Imafidon)
  • Knowle West Media Centre (Dot Baker)
  • Hanwell Zoo (Beau-Jensen McCubbin)
  • We The Curious (Amanda Colbourne)
  • Impression 5 (Micaela Balzer)
  • Boys & Girls Club of Lansing (Carmen Turner).

There will be a panel with Katherine Mathieson (British Science Association), Shaaron Leverment (The UK Association for Science and Discovery Centres) and Dr Marianne Shelton (UK Research and Innovation).
