In this paper we draw on research from the TISME (Targeted Initiative on
Science and Mathematics Education) programme and elsewhere to discuss
these issues. TISME is a programme of five projects, funded by the ESRC
in partnership with the Institute of Physics, the Gatsby Foundation and the
Association for Science Education. We draw particularly on two of the
projects: ASPIRES, a five year longitudinal study of how children in years
6 – 9 develop science and career aspirations; and UPMAP, a three year
longitudinal study of the factors that influence school students to continue
with mathematics or physics after the age of 16.
