Both the Science with Technology and Mechanics in Action Projects have been working with schools and developing curriculum materials with the aim of bringing together the learning of Mathematics, Science and Technology. The intention has been to improve the way in which students integrate the knowledge and skills from the different subjects, and hence improve the quality of their learning, by breaking down some of the barriers between the subjects. This paper discusses some of the subject specific and whole school issues that such attempts at integration raise. The strategies that we, and the schools we are working with, are developing to bring the subjects together for students, and to overcome the curriculum and timetabling problems of such cross-disciplinary work, are described. Some initial evaluative findings are presented.
