Science Education in Europe

Nuffield Foundation i England har tagit fram en rapport med titeln "Science Education in Europe - Critical Reflections".

Why study science? To quote the authors of this report: "Science is an important component of our European cultural heritage. It provides the most important explanations we have of the material world. In addition, some understanding of the practices and processes of science is essential to engage with many of the issues confronting contemporary society." Yet in  recent times fewer young people seem to be interested in science and technical subjects. Why is this? Does the problem lie  in wider socio-cultural changes, and the ways in which young people in developed countries now live and wish to shape their lives? Or is it due to failings within science education itself?
