“In2ScienceUK tackles two critical national challenges; a deficit of skilled STEM workers in the UK and the fact that young people from low income backgrounds are less likely than their wealthier peers to progress to university to study STEM subjects. Clearly, this is not OK which is why I am delighted that In2ScienceUK will be a 2014/15 Teach First Innovation Partner.”
Brett Wigdortz, Founder and CEO, Teach First
