The Vertically Integrated Project: STEM Education & Public Engagement aims to foster both interdisciplinary approach to learning and the development of enhanced communities of inquiry. Within the project students create and sustain STEM Education Clinics in schools and Public Engagement events within related local communities in Scotland. In so doing, the project develops students’ own STEM domain knowledge and intra–professional skills sets and also seeks to promote the development of STEM literacies across stakeholder communities in which these clinics are set.
