The Science Education MA aims to reflect contemporary theory in all aspects of practice in science education: international, formal and informal. I am a full-time teacher of science, biology and maths. My work-load varies from day-to-day depending on my timetable. In general, I start with some prep work followed by classes. Corrections, administration work, preparing experiments and marking exams are all part of the job. Teaching also involves liaising with parents, other teachers, guidance counsellors and other professionals. In my non-contact hours, I am involved in pastoral care, coaching, Young Scientist and various extracurricular activities with the students. There are also parent-teacher meetings, exam supervision and many other tasks associated with the teaching life. Though sometimes demanding and challenging, teaching can be very rewarding.
Chemistry is the study of chemicals and the elements and their effects and attributes. Students in chemistry learn the periodic table. The branch of science education known as “chemistry must be taught in a relevant context in order to promote full understanding of current sustainability issues.” 12 As this source states chemistry is a very important subject in school as it teaches students to understand issues in the world. As children are interested by the world around them chemistry teachers can attract interest in turn educating the students further. 13 The subject of chemistry is a very practical based subject meaning most of class time is spent working or completing experiments.
The goal of the R25 Science Education Partnership Award (SEPA) program is support pre-kindergarten to grade 12 (P-12) and informal science education activities that: (1) enhance the training of a workforce to meet the nation’s biomedical, behavioral and clinical research needs, and (2) foster a better understanding of NIH-funded biomedical, behavioral and clinical research and its public health implications.
