A number of academies, societies and organisations will be distributing an Oxford University Press survey to members, member organisations, committees and Special Interest Groups canvassing views of experts to influence the PISA science programme – PISA is the world’s largest international education study, involving over half a million students across 80 countries. It assesses 15 year olds’ ability to use their reading, mathematics and science knowledge and skills to meet real-life challenges. It provides insights to governments and policy makers and is often a catalyst for change in education systems.

The current review will directly inform forthcoming PISA science assessments. The survey gives individuals and organisations an opportunity to share their vision of how STEM education should be preparing young people for the future and what innovations will drive change for the next generation. I expect to be involved in this review process and encourage you to submit views, and to pass on this survey to others.
