Current projects

The Institute is currently running three gender balance projects.

Current projects

IGB Scotland is a partnership between the IOP, Skills Development Scotland and Education Scotland that aims to empower students, teachers and parents to tackle stereotyping in the choice of school subjects and careers.

The  Opening Doors Charter pilot is working with a small group of schools to investigate the impact of a quality mark on whole school gender equality. It is being run in partnership with King’s College London.

As part of the Stimulating Physics Network, we are supporting teachers to use inclusive physics teaching techniques and working with schools to implement whole school programmes to improve gender equality.
