The Bridging the Gap project aims:

To develop in pre-service science teachers a deep and solid understanding of the connections between theoretical science knowledge and its application in society through immersion in authentic experiential learning in an industry environment.

To increase pre-service science teachers’ capacity to innovate new approaches to learning and teaching in secondary schools, associated with creative problem solving, a spirit of enterprise and contemporary science in meaningful contexts.

To positively impact secondary school students’ perceptions of STEM as a creative enterprise thus increasing the likelihood that they will pursue STEM careers.

Entrepreneurship is an economic activity requiring attention to the framework conditions for business creation and growth. But more importantly it is a human endeavour, requiring attention to the way that our attitudes are shaped, our skills developed, our networks formed. And so it is inseparable from education – not independent of it.
