Real World Science is a collaborative learning initiative run by partner museums across the UK.

This highly successful programme uses museums’ natural history collections to get young people and teachers engaged with science.

The Real World Science programme aims to:

  • inspire further study in science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM), and build scientific literacy 
  • support the professional development of museum educators nationally, and assist them in creating and delivering science learning opportunities
  • help regional museums to utilise their resources and extend their reach
  • increase the number of students and teachers visiting museums with natural history collections
