Science & Education publishes research using historical, philosophical, and sociological approaches in order to improve teaching, learning, and curricula in science and mathematics. In addition, the journal disseminates accounts of lessons, units of work, and programs at all levels of science and mathematics that have successfully utilized history and philosophy.

We’ll help to change the culture of professional development in UK schools, through funding science-related professional development for teachers, and using our research to show the benefits of training. Our aim is for all teachers to regularly access professional development, with 100% of secondary schools and 22% of primary schools benefitting from training at the National STEM Learning Centre by 2023.

After almost nine months of analytical work, and fact-finding visits to Poland, the PSF Peer Review panel’s report and recommendations on the modernisation of the national science and higher education system - to make it more transparent, more competitive and better governed - were discussed at a special meeting hosted by the Polish Ministry for Science and Higher Education. The meeting was addressed by JarosÅ‚aw Gowin, Polish Minister of Science and Higher Education, and Robert-Jan Smits, Director-General of the European Commission’s Directorate-General for Research and Innovation. The findings of the report, and its recommendations, were presented by the Chair of the PSF Peer Review Panel, Professor Georg Winckler, President of the Association of the ERSTE Foundation and former Rector of the University of Vienna, as well as the Peer Review panel’s rapporteur, Jaana Puukka, an expert on higher education and innovation policy.

By the end of World War II, the place of science in school programs had attained universal acceptance. Teacher education programs were standardized to include science methods courses and student teaching after a year of introduction to education and educational psychology courses. School programs were to provide functional science experiences, that is, skills and knowledge that students could use. Faculty at preparatory institutions became the chief proponents for a useful science program for students.
