Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


Educational programmes and activities outside the formal education system provide learning opportunities for students, teachers and the public in science, technology, engineering and mathematics. Science and technology museums are highlighted, as they are well positioned to provide teachers, students and the public with teaching and learning opportunities in STEM that are locally relevant, promote engagement among participants and reflect the local culture. This chapter will concentrate on the efforts of two engineering societies and their education programmes and activities in collaboration with science and technology museums.
