Information About this Website

This website has been developed in part due to the increasing demand over the last eighteen months for help with the teaching of unfamiliar subject areas in the changing GCSE Science curriculum. It is also our intention to increase awareness of the subject generally across the education sector, in an effort to increase student numbers across UK Higher Education. Materials Science has been identified by the government as a strategically important yet vulnerable subject area.
