Online Session: Science Capital & STEM Ambassadors
Event Date: 13 June 2022
Learn about the concept of science capital and how STEM Ambassadors can help with its acquisition.
Science Capital is a concept that can help us to understand why some young people have a science identity, seeing science as being ‘for me’ and others do not. The more Science Capital a young person has, the more likely they are to continue with science post-16.
This short session will be a whistle-stop tour of the research around the concept of Science Capital and the impact that STEM Ambassadors can have on its acquisition by students.
