Science education is a highly dynamic field of applied and basic research and of research-based development. Washington, D.C. -The DC STEM Network is one of eight groups to win the US2020’s 2018 STEM Coalition Challenge. The Challenge was a nationwide competition for communities toincrease hands-on STEM mentoring and maker-centered learning to underrepresented students. The winners were announced at the Bay Area Maker Faire in San Mateo, CA, last week. The DC STEM Network will receive a share of a $1 million award which will support further innovative, STEM-based learning for Washington, DC students.
The International Journal of Research in Education and Science (IJRES) is a peer-reviewed and online free journal. The IJRES is published twice a year in January and July. The manuscripts which are accepted for publication in the IJRES before January are published in the winter manuscripts which are accepted for publication in the IJRES before July are published in the summer issue.
highly developed and well-tested theories. These theories, in turn, can explain bodies of data and predict outcomes of experiments. They are also tools for further development of the subject. An important component of science is the knowledge of the limitations of current theories, that is, an understanding of those aspects of a theory that are well tested and hence are well established, and of those aspects that are not well tested and hence are provisional and likely to be modified as new empirical evidence is acquired.
Museum Victoria – offers education programs, resources and experiences. The Mind and Body and Science and Life galleries are particularly useful for the learning and teaching of science. 6. Publish Science Education Monthly Journal, report of research projects, instructional materials, and curriculum materials. Few teacher education programs are using what is known about science as envisioned by the National Science Education Standards.
The practice of science education has been increasingly informed by research into science teaching and learning. Research in science education relies on a wide variety of methodologies, borrowed from many branches of science and engineering such as computer science, cognitive science, cognitive psychology and anthropology. Science education research aims to define or characterize what constitutes learning in science and how it is brought about.
