This study is part of the project entitled “Improving student interest in STEM through preservice teacher Industry Engagement”. This project will investigate engagement in a STEM industry by pre-service teachers of science, as part of their preparation for teaching in secondary schools. They will then use this experience to develop an innovative and creative unit plan to undertake during their final teaching placement with a secondary science class. This project is supported by the College of Education, Psychology and Social Work, The Office of the Deputy Vice Chancellor (Research) and the Department for Innovation and Skills.
