Chelsea College, Nuffield Foundation Science Teaching Project

Administrative / Biographical history

The Nuffield Foundation Science Teaching Project Combined Science Project was intended for children in the 11 to 13 age range, and aimed to be adaptable for use within a range of abilities. The subject matter of the course was based on the material developed by the separate O-Level Nuffield Foundation Science Teaching Projects in biology, chemistry and physics, and was divided into ten sections: the world around us; looking for patterns; how living things begin; air; electricity; water; small things; earth; insects; and energy. The organiser of the project was M J Elwell, guided by the consultative committee under the chairmanship of Professor M Stacey.

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.
