STEM Education and Research Projects 2012/13

In February 2013, with financial support from the Centre for Learning and Academic Development (CLAD), the STEM Education Centre established four Education and Research projects.  While each project has adopted a different focus, all four are based around the theme of ‘Transforming Student Delivery’ and as such align with a core theme of the University of Birmingham’s Curriculum Review.
