Last week’s poll: Space Universities Network

Engineer readers believe the new organisation to  support space technology teaching in the UK will be most valuable to strengthen STEM take-up

A clear majority of the 221 readers who responded to last week’s poll believe that the new Space Universities Network, formed to provide resources and organise events to support the teaching of space science and engineering in the UK, will be most valuable in helping to promote the uptake of science, technology, engineering and maths, with 58 per cent choosing this option. More optimistic responders comprised the next-largest group, with 26 per cent saying that the network would make the UK a world-leading nation; another 10 per cent took the more pessimistic option, saying that other nations were now too far ahead for the UK to catch up. Only 6 per cent declined to pick an option.
