Designed to foster close relations with the Welsh Parliament and the Welsh Government, Science and the Senedd is organised by the Royal Society of Chemistry, on behalf of, and in cooperation with, the Welsh science and engineering community.

The theme will be: ‘Climate Science, Sustainability….and Covid-19’


Professor Mary Gagen, Swansea University
Teaching sustainable science, teaching science sustainably: lessons from the Swansea University Science for School’s Scheme.
We introduce Swansea University Science for Schools Scheme (S4), part of the pan Wales Trio Sci Cymru programme, and its approach to teaching sustainability, and climate change awareness, through a broad STEM outreach programme. We explore how focusing on the cross-cutting themes of environmental awareness, the objectives of Wales’ Future Generations act and new curriculum proposals, allows a methodological framework to emerge for delivering impactful, equity-facing outreach in Wales.  Delivering university-led STEM outreach to students from underserved backgrounds, S4 translated science-capital theory to Wales’ unique socio-economic context via three pillars - science confidence, science capability and science citizenship. We discuss lessons from S4 and what further work needs to be done to add important geographical perspectives to science capital practice in Wales.
