Science Education News, December 1972: Trends in Science Education.
American Association for the Advancement of Science, Washington, DC.
Eight topics relating to institution activities, project developments, and bibliography preparation are presented in this newsletter issued in December, 1972. A brief history, purposes, and functions are discussed for three centers: the Center for Unified Science Education at Ohio State University, the Environmental Education Center at Portland State University, and the Regional Center for Education in Science and Mathematics in Malaysia. Introductory descriptions are included for two colleges: the Metropolitan State College in Denver and the College of Environmental and Applied Sciences at Governors State University. Moreover, the lake restoration inventory of the Inland Lake Demonstration Project and the Science, Technology, and Society (STS) project among high schools in Maryland are introduced in connection with their sponsoring institutions and present and future developments. In the lake inventory article, an appeal is made for special assistance to gather information concerning nutrient enrichment and reservoir sedimentation. The remaining topic is related to a bibliography published as the third edition of "Science for Society." As an overall purpose, a broad view on the trends in science education is provided in this article. (CC)
