Scientific Enquiry and its Place in the National Curriculum
This is a report of a SCORE workshop held in September 2011 at the Royal Society to explore the place of scientific enquiry in the national curriculum. The report summarises the main issues raised and describes the views of the participants. The workshop was chaired by Libby Steele, Head of Education at the Royal Society. The group discussions were preceded by two presentations on the findings of research, commissioned by SCORE, into How Science Works is dealt with in the National Curriculum in England and in the national curricula of other countries.
