Engaging schools in Biological Sciences Engaging schools in Biological Sciences

About the Programme

In 2013 UEA was awarded funding from Research Councils UK to establish a School:University Partnership Programme. The programme is being directed by the School of Biological Sciences but with support from other UEA Schools and Research Institutes across the Norwich Research Park.

Within this programme the Norwich Research Park will engage pupils in our partner secondary schools with the ideas and processes of research that occurs across all subject areas, including science, history, literature, language and art. We will show how research is done and highlight the differences and similarities between the research processes in different disciplines. We will also show that sciences, arts and humanities subjects do not exist in isolation, and that much can be gained by working together in a cross-disciplinary way to investigate and solve problems. One of our new initiatives is to establish the Teacher:Humanities Network (THN), through the School of American Studies and based on the existing Teacher:Scientist Network (TSN) This will partner a teacher in each of our partner schools with a researcher from the humanities.
