Chemistry for All
£199,561, Royal Society of Chemistry. The Royal Society of Chemistry (RSC) has launched a £1 million, five-year project, called Chemistry for All, aiming to widen participation in chemistry. The project, working with partner universities, aims to explore and overcome barriers to studying chemistry for a number of target groups of students, through a programme of specially designed interventions. The IOE has been funded to work closely with the RSC and partner universities to evaluate the effectiveness of the chemistry interventions. We will explore the impact of the longitudinal intervention on the students who take part, following them from Year 8 through to Year 12, and possibly to undergraduate study, training or work. We will undertake annual student surveys and the data from the intervention schools will be compared to that of matched control schools. In the autumn term 2014 we will be collecting our first wave of survey data. Once the data are analysed we will use them to select a sub-group of students who will be interviewed longitudinally over five years. The project will also undertake some ethnography in intervention schools and interview chemistry teachers. The objectives of the overall project are: • To contribute to the knowledge base on the appropriate methodologies for studying the impact of longitudinal interventions (whether neutral, positive or negative) on target students from widening participation backgrounds. • To inform future Government practice and raise awareness in the UK Government and university and school leadership of the barriers to progression in chemistry for target students. • To provide insights into the success, or otherwise, of the intervention activities in overcoming barriers to progression in chemistry.
