PUPiL are very excited to be working with Dr Phil Heron, Durham University, to host the Prison Education and STEM Symposium, exploring innovation, challenges, and opportunities in science teaching across the prison estate.
This symposium is an opportunity for outreach professionals, prison staff, and STEM academics to bring their expertise together with a broad aim of widening participation in STEM learning across the prison estate.
We welcome attendees interested in learning more about how universities and prisons can work together to deliver STEM education activity. Book your free place here.
By offering short presentations, facilitating discussions, and creating space for sharing ideas, practice and experience, we will focus on three key aims:
Confirmed speakers include:
Booking is via Eventbrite. Registration will likely be between 10 and 10.30, when the day’s programme will start. The event will finish around 5pm. We will have a precise agenda which attendees will receive as soon as all speakers are confirmed.
Tickets will allow you to hear all our speakers and attend both panels with questions; to attend a taster workshop of the Think Like a Scientistprogramme, and to hear our keynote (TBC).
Refreshments will be available and a light lunch will be included.
Some funding is available to contribute towards travel for research students, ECRs, people who have been in prison, and anyone who would otherwise be unable to attend.
If you cannot attend the event but would like to find out more about prison-university partnerships, please join the PUPiL network (prison-university partnerships in learning) to receive our monthly communications.
