The Targeted Initiative on Science and Mathematics Education (TISME) is a programme of research funded by the ESRC in partnership with the Gatsby Charitable Foundation, The Institute of Physics and the Association for Science Education. The programme launched in the summer of 2010 and runs until 2014.
Through a portfolio of research studies and dissemination activities, TISME aims to find new ways to encourage children and young people to greater participation, engagement, achievement and understanding of Science and Mathematics.
Five major research projects - ASPIRES, EISER, epiSTEMe, ICCAMS and UPMAP – are funded under the Initiative.
TISME's co-ordinating team is from the Department of Education and Professional Studies at King’s College London.
