Name of creator(s)

Chelsea College, Nuffield Foundation Science Teaching Project

Administrative / Biographical history

The Nuffield Foundation Science Teaching Project (NFSTP) Chemistry O-level Project began in 1962, when a small team was established to prepare and publish materials for a five-year course. The organiser was Mr H F Halliwell, supported by members of the NFSTP headquarters team at Chelsea College, the consultative committee, and area leaders. In 1970 R B Ingle prepared and circulated a detailed questionnaire, sent to some 200 schools which entered pupils for the 1970 GCE examination, identifying areas of the course needing revision.

Immediate source of acquisition or transfer

The records were transferred to King's College London Archives from the Nuffield Foundation Science Teaching Project at Chelsea College.
