Funded by Horizon 2020, SySTEM 2020 is a multi-faceted project focused on understanding the delivery and impact of science learning opportunities outside of the classroom. The project is coordinated by Science Gallery at Trinity College Dublin and comprises 22 partners in 19 countries across Europe and Israel. Our partners are science centres, makerspaces, museums, and galleries running non-formal science learning activities. When the consortium began working on the project together in 2018, we

Together, we have explored the ways in which science learning, attitudes and aptitudes, are influenced by learners' physical, emotional, social and cultural contexts. This report summarises the findings and outputs of SySTEM 2020 and explores what's next for science learning outside the classroom.
