Science education is one of the most important subjects in school due to its relevance to students’ lives and the universally applicable problem-solving and critical thinking skills it uses and develops. These are lifelong skills that allow students to generate ideas, weigh decisions intelligently and even understand the evidence behind public policy-making. Teaching technological literacy, critical thinking and problem-solving through science education gives students the skills and knowledge they need to succeed in school and beyond.
We want to give primary school teachers the skills, knowledge, confidence and passion they need to improve primary science teaching That’s why we provide training and resources like Explorify – a programme of fun and simple science activities to inspire teachers and spark their pupils’ curiosity.
