The Science Team at SERC in Northern Ireland work as a dynamic and innovative group who have consistently delivered an outstanding educational experience for 10 years. Many of the team members come from an industrial or academic research background and, combined with their educational training, expertise and passion, have utilised this in the development of an innovative, interactive and engaging curriculum that makes Science interesting, meaningful, relevant and current.

They have developed a wide range of strategies for learner engagement.

BTEC Science students have benefited from project-based learning, active learning in practical scenarios, engagement with the wider scientific community via competition entry, guest speakers, live projects and acting as STEM role models in local primary and secondary schools.
