ScienceEd was created to help spark children’s interest in science. Through experiments, demonstrations, games, videos and a variety of other neat little things, ScienceEd introduces children to the mysteries and marvels the world of science has to offer.
FEAST is a collaborative project, started at the end of 2011, co-funded by the European Commission under the Lifelong Learning Programme, that involves 8 different partners all over Europe. It aims to involve families in the science education of children.
This document summarises international research evidence from the fields of science and mathematics education and makes recommendations. Through the presentation of ten ‘facts and fictions’, we make a case for the pressing need to integrate an awareness of STEM careers into the school curriculum.
Here we provide information we think will be interesting and of value to other scientists, and try to give a personal perspective on the tools Promega provides to support the advancement of science and science education.
Computer games and simulations sounds like a great medium to get kids actively involved in science (see the NRC report "Learning Science Through Computer Games and Simulation") which is why the MIT STEP program and TEA work together to build computer and video games as part of classroom curriculum.
