B – Des sciences à l’école

Pierre-Leon T. De Sciences à l’ècole

Accedit 2009;10

Given the fact that science education in primary schools is lacking, (although a French article this statement would easily apply to other countries) is lacking in the general population attitude of thinking as well as in the work force: the target of the teaching method in this article – intentionally repeated at the beginning of the description of each and almost every module – is to build in 5 to 12 years old students, a scientific mind. Very fascinating and at the same time a very involving teaching procedure illustrated in 15 modules each focusing on specific subjects (magical thinking, rational thought, validation of scientific affirmation, daily lives solving techniques, living organisms, earth, moon, the universe etc.) that, however, will required skilled teachers.
