Science capital is a concept that can help us understand patterns in science participation - why some people engage with science and others do not. But how can you make the most use of Science Capital and the research underpinning it in your day-to-day practices. The ASPIRES research project is a long-term research study investigating the science and career aspirations of young people from age 10 to 23 lead by Professor Louise Archer at UCL Institute of Education. Louise developed the concept of Science Capital (even lending her voice to ‘Science Capital – an introduction’ video) and will share the most recent findings from the ASPIRES research along with what’s next for the research
