About this work
In November 2012 the Wellcome Trust’s Review of Informal Science Learning highlighted the challenge of reaching young people from disadvantaged backgrounds. In response, the Trust commissioned Platypus Research to undertake two strands of work: first, a literature review that examined previous work with this audience; and second, new research to find out what these young people do in their spare time and how we might better engage them with science.
