Join us at our latest TalkScience event to discuss what secondary science education is for and how it should be taught. There is a need to train more scientists to tackle global challenges such as population growth, climate change, and food security. Furthermore, all citizens need the skills and knowledge to be able to participate in an inclusive public debate about how society handles scientific issues.
Should secondary science education cater primarily for the budding professional scientist, or for the informed citizen of the future? Who should determine the curriculum; policy makers, teachers, parents, students, or scientists? How should science be taught and assessed?
Come and discuss the future of secondary science education with our expert panel: including David Perks (East London Science School), Peter Finegold (Institution of Mechanical Engineers), and Professor Louise Archer (Kings College London). Chaired by Ed Dorrell (Times Educational Supplement).
