1 What do young people learn about science?

If you asked a random selection of people to brainstorm ‘science’, what do you think would be said? Although most students’ formal science learning begins in school, they learn a great deal informally outside of school. Consider for one moment the out-of-school encounters you have had with science this week – science is all around us. Through this, students learn about the nature of science; how science is done, who does science, what science is valued and whether science is for them.
