This programme aims to give students the academic and practical skills they need to develop a critical understanding of the role of science education, research and communication in society. Education science is closely related to pedagogy, which is the process of teaching. More specifically, however, education science is considered to be the study of improving the teaching process. The field of education science can include the examination and research of different teaching methods and how groups of students receive these methods, as well as the process of improving teaching methodologies.
Project 2061 is AAAS’s ongoing effort to improve science literacy in America through research and development focused on K-12 curriculum, assessment, and instruction. Project 2061 staff use their expertise as teachers, researchers, and scientists to help make literacy in science, mathematics and technology a reality for all students.

High school students took most of these courses (85%). Math courses made up nearly 23% of the courses taken, and science courses made up 14%. Learning Theories: This module introduces a range of learning theories from education, psychology, machine learning and neuroscience that together generate a new ‘science of learning’ and will concentrate closely on the work of Lev Semenovich Vygotsky, which is among the most influential in current educational research and practice.
For example, we know that only 81 percent of Asian-American high school students and 71 percent of white high school students attend high schools where the full range of math and science courses are offered (Algebra I, geometry, Algebra II, calculus, biology, chemistry, and physics). The access to these courses forÂ American Indian, Native-Alaskan, black, and Hispanic high school students are significantly worse. Children’s race, zip code, or socioeconomic status should never determine their STEM fluency. We must give all children the opportunity to be college-ready and to thrive in a modern STEM economy.
Science is everywhere. A student rides to school on a bus, and in that instance alone, there are many examples of technology based on the scientific method. The school bus is a product of many areas of science and technology, including mechanical engineering and innovation. The systems of roads, lights, sidewalks and other infrastructure are carefully designed by civil engineers and planners. The smartphone in the student’s hand is a miracle of modern computer engineering.
