Science education is a highly dynamic field of applied and basic research and of research-based development. If you’re in high school or college, you know by now that exams and tests come with the territory of being a student. Some exams are used to ensure that students have the proper knowledge needed to graduate or enroll in a particular class or program, while other tests are used to measure students’ skill levels in subjects like reading, writing, and math.

Taronga’s aim is to inspire and educate the next generation of conservation scientists. The Taronga Institute will support the essential need for contextual authentic STEM learning and, together with the wider Zoo sites, will provide authentic, interactive learning opportunities in an environment of working science. The co-location of teaching facilities and research labs will create tangible links between theory and practice.

9. Conducting mathematic and scientific workshops for high school students. 8. Participated the study of the International Association for the Evaluation of Education Achievement (IEA). Using the four goals for school science to prepare teachers to internalize the National Science Education Standards, including experiencing science as: an investigation of natural phenomena, a means for making sound personal decisions, an aid in public discussion and debate of current issues, and a means of increasing economic productivity.

Do you have solid knowledge in one of the sciences, do you enjoy sharing your knowledge, and would you like to deepen your insight in education and communication processes? Then the Master’s programme in Science Education and Communication may be your choice. National data available to address the quality and effectiveness of technology-based educational programs delivered in classrooms remain limited; available research has generally shown only modest positive effects of technology on learning.

Interestingly, the study of technology has always been seen as more interesting and useful than the study of science alone. Further, the public has often been more aware of and supportive of technological advances than those of basic science. Vellom, R.P., and Anderson, C.W. (1999).
