Description

Several studies have documented students' lack of interest, motivation and uptake in learning science. In 2007, an EU report called for a radical change in science pedagogy and recommended that school science teaching move from a deductive to an inquiry approach. To support this idea, the EU has funded many multi-country projects to bring a more inquiry approach to school science and to support groups of teachers across Europe in bringing about this radical change in pedagogy.
