Fun, enjoyment, creativity, challenge, teamwork, and building pupil confidence are integral parts of 'Enterprising Science and Technology'. The project aims to make pupils more enterprising and to generate pupil interest in science and technology. Various surveys and research reports, outlined in the following paragraph, suggest that there is a decline in interest in science subjects. This project indicates that giving pupils an out-of-class experience can create an enterprising environment, encourage teamwork and build pupil confidence. Additionally, it shows that such an experience also increases interest in science and technology. This article shows how policy can meet practice in Scottish school education through the design and evaluation of a programme of education for work and enterprise.
