Primary Science 171 Nature of science
Issue 171 | Published January 2022
The theme for this issue is ‘nature of science’. As Professor Brad Gibson mentions in our regular ‘In conversation with …’ piece in this issue, there has never been a more important time for primary science. Schools, he postulates, are key to counterbalancing all the pseudoscience children may have encountered virtually during the recent pandemic. Teachers re-establishing sound real-world science skills with their pupils, as well as reinvigorating the wonder and awe of the natural universe in young minds, is crucial to success with this task.
