Cinti, Stefano – School Science Review, 2021
Every day we deal with chemistry in various forms, but sometimes we don't see that. An example is biosensors that help us to evaluate health conditions, monitor environmental pollution and ensure food freshness. The most well known (and most widely sold) is the biosensor for blood glucose measurement, used every day by people with diabetes.…

Liston, Maeve – School Science Review, 2021
This article explores the concept of STEM education and characteristics of truly authentic STEM learning experiences and events. It examines the engineering design process and how engineering glues science, mathematics and technology together. Two engineering challenges, 'Design and build a bridge' and 'Design and make a catapult', carried out…

Parvin, Elizabeth M. – School Science Review, 2021
Science and technology play an important role in modern medicine and experience shows that, although school students and their relatives are likely to have experienced some of the complex procedures available today, they are generally not aware of the science behind them. Demonstrations that link school science to medical procedures can therefore…

Price, Gareth; Bevins, Stuart – School Science Review, 2021
This article offers an outline of 3D science that conceptualises science around three dimensions: domain knowledge, evidence-management procedures and psychological energy. We propose that this model could underpin a rigorous, effective and motivating approach to science education in schools. We show how self-determination theory offers useful…

Hawkins, Ann-Marie – School Science Review, 2021
The sense of hearing is very important in our need and ability to communicate with others, and for our safety. An audiologist describes features of the role of an audiologist and outlines training routes. Understanding how the ear works is the starting point, followed by basic details of some causes of hearing problems and management options for…

Stiller, Cornelia; Stockey, Andreas; Hahn, Stefan; Wilde, Matthias – School Science Review, 2021
This article describes a new competence-oriented teaching rationale for a science course, developed in Germany through close cooperation between teachers and researchers, that seeks to improve scientific literacy at upper-level secondary school (ages 15-17). Its aim is to help students become independent and competent experimenters by combining…

Vidal López, Manuel; Yebra, Miguel Ángel; Membiela, Pedro – School Science Review, 2021
Inquiry projects can play an important role in science education, despite involving significant challenges for teachers and students. Based on historical references, small groups of students and their teachers carried out inquiry projects on the ability of certain insects to 'revive' after remaining immersed in water for some time. The striking…

Dunlop, Lynda; Turkenburg-van Diepen, Maria; Knox, Kerry J.; Bennett, Judith; Adebanjo, Aba; Moore, Simon; Hampshire, Martin; Hunt, Tanya; Poliakoff, Simon – School Science Review, 2021
The Gatsby "Good Practical Science" report (Gatsby, 2017) identified opportunities to carry out open-ended investigative projects as one of ten benchmarks for good practical science. However, there is currently no requirement for post-16 students in England to have access to such opportunities as this is not required by A-level…

Bansal, Garima – School Science Review, 2020
Formative assessment in science has long been reported to support students' scientific understanding. It involves teachers gathering assessment evidence, interpreting it in the light of learning goals and providing feedback to bridge the gap between students' current state of understanding and the desired educational goals. This study examines how…

Harris, Frank – School Science Review, 2020
This article considers to what degree the UK depends on nuclear power for the generation of electricity and examines the problems, environmental and technical, associated with radioactive waste. Historical failings, the waste backlog, classification, modern handling techniques and with decisions about final disposal are outlined to provide an…

Sindhu, R. S.; Tanwar, Pramila – School Science Review, 2020
There has been widespread interest in the study of oxoacids of phosphorus owing to their characteristic structures and uses in various areas of daily life. In this article, a new strategy is recommended to determine their structures. This strategy will help to develop problem-solving skills and creativity among students. The strategy is based on…

Davis-Berg, Elizabeth C.; Minbiole, Julie – School Science Review, 2020
The completion rates were compared for long-form questions where a large blank answer space is provided and for long-form questions where the answer space has bullet-points prompts corresponding to the parts of the question. It was found that students were more likely to complete a question when bullet points were provided in the answer space.…

Balta, Nuri – School Science Review, 2020
Teaching through discrepant event activities increases student interest in science. In this article, I will introduce a well-known 19th century demonstration, the Tissandier experiment, to stimulate curiosity among students learning the concept of inertia. In this demonstration, a hard object (e.g. a wooden rod) placed on fragile supports is…

ten Hoor, Marten J. – School Science Review, 2020
The mathematical method of linear equations involving the coefficients of the equation of a chemical reaction can be used to balance the equation of nearly every chemical reaction. For its application, only the rules of simple algebra need be known. Hence, the method could even be used by students of an elementary chemistry course.

Ingram, Neil R. – School Science Review, 2020
Conrad Hal Waddington's epigenetic landscape is now a central paradigm in evolutionary developmental biology. This article proposes that it should be adopted into middle-years (ages 11-16) biology curricula as a way of visualising the interactions of the genome with the environment. The epigenetic landscape is explained, with some biographical…
