SCORE Annual Conference 2014
Why science? What science? Curriculum choices at 14
About the conference
In 2014 there is there is no better time to address
these key questions in science education policy: Why science?
SCORE invites partners from the science and education
communities to consider the place of the sciences in the
school curriculum age 14 to 16. SCORE has made progress
towards an informed stance on the needs of learners at this
age through research into practical work in schools and the
development of guidelines for the key stage 4 curriculum.
The discussion and debate stimulated at the conference will
influence the development of a SCORE position on the curriculum at
key stage 4.
