The Science Education MA aims to reflect contemporary theory in all aspects of practice in science education: international, formal and informal. In 1996, the U.S. National Academy of Sciences of the U.S. National Academies produced the National Science Education Standards , which is available online for free in multiple forms. Its focus on inquiry-based science , based on the theory of constructivism rather than on direct instruction of facts and methods, remains controversial. 36 Some research suggests that it is more effective as a model for teaching science.

Education was not common in Ancient Egypt; only few attended schools.
