Final Report - PARSEL (Popularity And Relevance in Science Education for scientific Literacy)

Project ID: 42922
Funded under: FP6-SOCIETY


Many studies have pointed out that school science at the primary level (grade 1-6) is interesting and enjoyable for students. Students at this age like to interact with practical ideas, make things and utilised these in a variety of settings. This situation, however, starts to change at the secondary level. The PARSEL project is an attempt to meet the challenge of putting forward teaching approaches to tackle the issue of a lack of popularity and relevance of school science at the secondary, and especially at the junior secondary, level. Their final report includes images and covers the importance and for reaching implications of the project. The project has garnered international interest and some of their teaching modules have been translated into languages other than those initially programmed.
