Supporting the foundations of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths)

This project has been funded by the Charity of Sir Richard Whittington and is part of the Mercers' Company Early Years special initiative. It is evaluating a 10-week intervention to upskill Early Years practitioners with the confidence, knowledge & skills to help parents encourage the foundations of STEM through everyday activities and interactions, and to support STEM skills in their settings.

The project is being delivered by Peeple in collaboration with the University of Oxford and Sheringham nursery.

The project is taking place from April 2021 to March 2024 and the evaluation will be using theory of change development, interviews, observations and outcome data analysis.
