Idea for research
Idea for research
We work across Europe and provide different interventions to try and make a difference and make fair and equitable access to science education - we have 3000+ scientists working to do this and 20,000 relationships between scientist and child.
Our work is fully aligned with the UN's Sustainable Development Goals, and the European Union's goals and priorities. We provide: Heritage Schools (delivering science workshops in the heritage language of ethnic minority and migrant children),;a project for 10-17 years olds in Portuguese;-speaking countries; scientists returning to their primary schools to deliver science workshops; training for labs/museums; and science communication training.

We would love to be part of a project that analyses a preliminary dataset of drawings, doodles, and short sentences done by children after participation in science outreach activities organized by Native Scientist on the topics of “Draw a scientist” and “If I were a scientist I would…”

We are really happy to have an introductory chat and share ideas to start the co-design process!
