It’s time to lower the bar of entry to STEM education

Three quarters (76%) of Brits agree there are currently huge barriers to students accessing a STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) education.

This is according to a new survey.

STEM education is important because it pervades every part of our lives. It provides the intellectual foundations and tools for future scientists, inventors, and engineers.

But, according to the 3M State of Science Index (SOSI)*, 47% of Brits believe there are too few STEM educators/teachers or classes in school to keep up with demand.

Aston spoke to Sarah Chapman, technical leader and advocate for diversity in STEM and Kay Hussain, CEO of Wise.
