This publication follows five years after Principles and Big Ideas of Science Education, in response to concerns that many students did not find their science education interesting or see it as relevant to their lives. The original report identified ten big ideas of science and four ideas about science and its applications. This report adds to the earlier work in setting out in greater detail the rationale for working towards big ideas and the implications of this for curriculum content, pedagogy, student assessment and teacher education.

This publication edited by Wynne Harlen, has been published by the Science Education Programme (SEP) of the Global Network of Science Academies, (IAP).
