Creativity Matters – Making Space for Teaching Creative Science

“Creativity Matters – Making Space for Teaching Creative Science” is part of the creativity matters series of reports examining the role of creativity within education.

Creativity Matters - Making Space for Teaching Creative Science

IVE, formerly CapeUK, have been at the forefront of research into creativity for 20 years. During that time we have produced a number of leading reports regarding creativity, what is creativity, what are its benefits, how it can be taught and what are the challenges t0 achieving that.

Originally produced in 2006, “Creativity Matters – Making Space for Teaching Creative Science” examines various methods by which science education in the UK can be amended to allow more opportunities for creative exploration and why this would be beneficial.  The report reviews a pilot project, Creative Space, to determine its impact, what was learned, what positive outcomes and best practice could be taken forward and what issues and problems were identified.

While the challenges facing schools have changed since then, much of this research remains accurate and provides valuable advice for schools that want to engage young people in STEM subjects by varying the approach to learning.
