KS4 Science - Twenty-First Century Science 2

Description

In 1998, the Beyond 2000 Report from King's College made major recommendations for changes to science education. The Qualifications and Curriculum Authority commissioned the University of York Science Education Group to develop an alternative model for GCSE science.

The Twenty First Century Science project team tackled the problem by creating three courses to suit the differing needs of students. Project director Andrew Hunt and project officer Peter Campbell explain the aims of the courses in more detail and visit Haggerston School to see how the pilot is progressing.

The pilot GCSE has been popular at Haggerston, inspiring teachers and students. They give us their opinions on the strengths and weaknesses of the course and consider whether this is the way forward for the future.

This programme includes:

  • A look at why the Twenty First Century Science pilot GCSE was commissioned
  • An evalution of its success
  • A discussion about the importance of scientific literacy today
