We take it for granted that learning science is an entitlement for all young people. However, some learners are excluded by a lack of opportunities and suitable resources, though primarily by the feeling that it’s “too hard” or “irrelevant for them”. Our research explores how science can be meaningful for everyone, no matter how exceptional, with the aim of ensuring that science really is ‘for all’.
