SfAM responds to the OECD’s STEM Education: A Vision for the Future survey

SfAM has responded to an invitation from Oxford University Press (OUP) to contribute to the current review of the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA) ahead of the forthcoming 2024 cycle.

 

PISA is the world’s largest international education study, involving over half a million students across 80 countries. It assesses 15-year-olds’ ability to use their reading, mathematics and science knowledge and skills to meet real-life challenges. It provides insights to governments and policy-makers and is often a catalyst for change in education systems.

 

SfAM committee members contributed their views on how STEM education should prepare young people and drive innovations in science over the next 10-15 years. The survey addresses various aspects of science education including; future challenges beyond 2030, knowledge/skills gaps and equality, diversity and inclusion.
