Academic Collaborators & Research
Collaborating with academia to enhance primary science throughout the UK
One of the Primary Science Teaching Trust’s principal aims is to be at the forefront of research into the teaching and learning of primary science.
We support a number of Academic Collaborators spanning the UK. The groups are usually found in higher education institutions and benefit from a three-year relationship with the Trust. While each Academic Collaborator is distinct, focusing on different aspects of primary school science, all share the core purpose of supporting and developing Trust activities.
We have six Academic Collaborators across the UK. Please click on the logos below to find out about the work of each Academic Collaborator.
Our outcomes in research may be in the form of papers to academic and professional journals, conference papers or it might take other forms such as the creation of resources, CPD units and teaching equipment.
We are now working in partnership with the Association of Science Education in the production of the Journal of Emergent Science (JES).
