Making Science Real Bk 3
- Promoting science inquiry through questioning
Make science learning easier, directly relevant and simply irresistible. This series draws students into exploring a range of science concepts with activities that are designed to spark their curiosity and to highlight why these concepts are important in their own lives. There is a strong curriculum focus with teacher notes that make explicit how each activity links to curriculum strands and achievement objectives.
After gaining a PhD in marine biology in 1992, Dr Chris Astall trained to become a primary school teacher and taught in schools in both the United Kingdom and New Zealand. Since 2008 he has been a senior lecturer in science education at the University of Canterbury, in Christchurch, New Zealand, a role that involves working with many schools throughout the country. In 1999 he was awarded the prestigious Royal Society (UK) Millennium Fellowship for his community science development project “Saturday Science and Technology”. His current research interests include the use of ICT in science education, the development of nature of science through children’s literature and exploring how schools can develop sustainable science practices. He has presented nationally and internationally and has facilitated numerous workshops, through science conferences and consultation work.
