SciJourn Project The SciJourn Project uses the practices of science journalism to develop science literacy among high school-aged students. This section provides statistics and facts related to education and science, including information on educational institutions, skills and levels, markets, as well as data on research and development. Melbourne Aquarium – offers education programs for primary through to senior secondary level students, comprehensive teacher resources, student interactive activities and the opportunity for secondary students to undertake work experience.

Traditionally the high school curriculum has consisted of physics in grade twelve, chemistry in grade eleven, and biology in grade ten. Often schools have moved to second-level courses in each of these three disciplines; at times these advanced courses are titled Advanced Placement and can be counted toward college degrees if scores on national tests are high enough to satisfy colleges. This focus … Read more

Jotse is an international Journal aiming at publishing interdisciplinary research within the university education framework and it is especially focused on the fields of Technology and Science. There are several science websites out there that can help students understand difficult topics, prepare for exams, and ultimately serve parents and teachers as a virtual teacher’s aid. The best part: Many of the better ones are absolutely free. Ministry of Education, Culture and Science personnel are dedicated, knowledgeable, professional, approachable and motivated.

The practice of science education has been increasingly informed by research into science teaching and learning. Research in science education relies on a wide variety of methodologies, borrowed from many branches of science and engineering such as computer science, cognitive science, cognitive psychology and anthropology. Science education research aims to define or characterize what constitutes learning in science and how it is brought about.

Children at the 100 pilot preschools will have access to four play-based ELSA apps, aligned with the Early Years Learning Framework The apps encourage learning beyond the screen through active, child-centred experiences that introduce STEM practices, such as exploring location, patterns and problem solving. Journal of Science Education and Technology -Publishes a broad range of papers covering theory and practice in order to facilitate future efforts of individuals and groups involved in the field.

Performance disparities in mathematics and science begin as early as kindergarten and persist through subsequent school years. The Framework provides a sound, evidence-based foundation for standards by drawing on current scientific research—including research on the ways students learn science effectively—and identifies the science all K-12 students should know.

Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology Web Site. The Science SIG hostedthe research strand of SCICON 2016, the bi-annual conference for science teachers in Lower Hutt, in July 2016. The collaboration with SCICON is intended to make the research-practice nexus more visible. The theme of the research strand, ‘Shaking up science education’ builds on the Conference Theme of ‘Earth shattering science’ and recognises the large number of individuals and groups involved in innovative research projects across New Zealand – from teaching inquiries undertaken by teachers in their own classrooms, to national initiatives seeking to inform science education and the Government’s goal of a more scientifically engaged public.
