Introducing the History of Science at the French Middle School
Fauque, Danielle M. E.
Science & Education, v18 n9 p1277-1283 Sep 2009
In scientific teaching, especially in physics and chemistry, some historical aspects have been introduced at the secondary level in France, since 1993. Particularly, in 2007, the syllabuses of 11'-15' years old level ("college") propose precise activities in history of science and technology. Detailed guidance has been distributed in official ministerial literature. The invention of Volta's battery in 1800 is one of the examples proposed, which is detailed here.
