Some of the people we work with
Explorify has been created by Wellcome with the help of teachers, pupils and a number of educational and science experts and institutions.
Wellcome was delighted to partner with the BBC Terrific Scientific campaign as a complementary initiative to Explorify. Terrific Scientific was a major 18-month UK-wide campaign to bring practical science into the classroom and into our homes. Instead of lab coats and test tubes, the campaign urged pupils, teachers and parents across the UK to grab lemons, leaves, tap water and other everyday items to join in with exciting and accessible mass-participation investigations. Aimed at upper primary school level, Terrific Scientific continues to help deliver the objectives of the science curricula for 9-to-11-year-olds across the UK.
The Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET)
The IET is a world leading professional organisation sharing and advancing knowledge to promote science, engineering and technology across the world. The IET supports teachers of science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM) to inspire students to remain studying these subjects and to consider engineering as a career. We provide free teaching resources for the classroom, along with other IET supported enhancement and enrichment activities for primary and secondary schools.
IET is supporting Explorify in the hope that this project will help to keep young people’s options open, enabling them to gain access to hundreds of different careers in the future, and go some way towards decreasing the educational and skills gap in STEM professions.
We have also been consulting and working with the following partners to make Explorify as effective, relevant and well connected with expertise and resources as we can.
