"The ability to engage in discussion about the impact of science on society is increasingly seen as an essential part of young peopleâ€™s education. Some examples of good work currently exist in schools and further education colleges, but these examples are comparatively few.
An interdisciplinary team from the Institute of Education, University of London, carried out research for the Wellcome Trust in which they sought to uncover how, and in which curriculum subjects, controversies arising from bioscience are tackled in schools and colleges in England and Wales. The aims of the research were to highlight good practice, identify institutional obstacles, and find ways of enhancing young peopleâ€™s experience of science education, preparing them to engage confidently with the issues that they are likely to face in the future."
