Concerns about the “dumbing down” of science have been around for decades, but in recent years there has been strong evidence to support this view. The QCDA and other “official” bodies have recently run consultation processes to collect teacher opinions, but these have not been to everyone’s satisfaction.
This website seeks to collect opinions and evidence which may contribute to answering the question “how should we teach science?”
It’s time to stop waiting around for other people to fix all the things that are broken with science education. Some of us have started a project which we hope will lead to the kind of changes we want to see. Join us here.
We know you’re busy, but please take a few moments to help shape the future of science education.
