A report detailing the impact of Raising Aspirations in Science Education (RAiSE) in the 2020/21 academic year has been released.

It highlights the positive impact that the programme and its Primary Science Development Officers (PSDOs) had during a disrupted and challenging period through virtual opportunities, responsive support, and ambitious network development.

Ali MacLachlan, UK Director at The Wood Foundation, said:

“The adaptability and responsiveness of the network was vital for ensuring STEM learning remained accessible and impactful for schools contending with many challenges.

“There are great examples of innovation and impact which will inform the programme’s evolution.”

RAiSE is a programme of The Wood Foundation, Scottish Government, Education Scotland, and participating local authorities to empower primary practitioners with the skills, confidence, and networks to deliver motivating and engaging STEM learning experiences.
