The Journal of Technology and Science Education (JOTSE) has been created as a contribution to the development and improvement of scientific and technological education by constituting a common space to share experiences to all those who, somehow, are involved in the teaching and learning processes of engineering studies, in all modalities. What scientists and what science educators do in the laboratory are sometimes similar but often different. I explore this divide in terms of the number of experimental trials that are conductor during laboratory investigations. I will advocate that science students conduct more trials that what is currently being done when they perform experiments in school.
The highlight of the course is definitely the teaching placement in which you are immersed completely in a school environment. During these placements, I developed great confidence in my teaching ability. The experience helps you to discover the kind of teacher you are and learn more about yourself as a person. Questacon – Australia’s national Science and Technology centre. It has on-line resources for both teachers and students and conducts an annual outreach program.
You can combine the Master’s programma Educational Science and Technology with a teacher training programme. After your (Dutch) vwo degree, you can start the academic teacher training programme. The complete study route (teacher training programme + pre-Master + Master) takes four years to complete. You follow the teacher training programme at a higher academic level at the Saxion University of Applied Sciences and the Master’s programme Educational Science and Technology at the University of Twente. More information about the route (only in Dutch).

All young people should be prepared to think deeply and to think well so that they have the chance to become the innovators, educators, researchers, and leaders who can solve the most pressing challenges facing our nation and our world, both today and tomorrow. But, right now, not enough of our youth have access to quality STEM learning opportunities and too few students see these disciplines as springboards for their careers.
