Industry called upon to help identify best practice in STEM education and engagement

Science Foundation Ireland (SFI) and the Department of Education and Skills have launched a study asking businesses across the country to assess their science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM) engagement with schools and third-level institutions (link to the press release here). This is part of a wider plan to identify and improve STEM support for students in Ireland.

The first phase of the plan is a tailored online survey, and we invite you to participate in this survey as you have had contact with SFI in the recent past. As a result, your knowledge and opinions will provide vital insights into the STEM engagement of businesses with schools and third-level institutions.

The survey will take between five to fifteen minutes to complete, depending on your level of engagement with schools and third-level institutions, and the link to the online survey ishere
