SCORE is a partnership between the Association for Science Education, the Biosciences Federation, the Institute of Biology, the Institute of Physics, the Royal Society, the Royal Society of Chemistry and the Science Council. SCORE acts under the auspices of the Royal Society and is chaired by Sir Alan Wilson FBA FRS.
SCORE aims to improve science education in UK schools and colleges by harnessing the expertise, influence and resources of key independent organisations to support the development and implementation of effective education policy and projects
The SCORE partners believe that the key to maximising the impact of their efforts, especially their influence on government, lies in a greater degree of collaboration and in having a sense of common purpose. Through this collective action, the partnership aims to increase its influence over the direction of science education in the years to come, in particular over teacher supply and retention, curriculum development, assessment, delivery of support to teachers and students, and strategies for reaching all young people regardless of age, background, level of ability, gender, ethnic origin and geographical location.
Current projects include:
Relative Difficulty of A-Levels;
Practical Work in Science;
The members also represent SCORE on a variety of boards and advisory panels.
