Students bring ideas or conceptions about scientific phenomena into the science class that are not always in agreement with our current understanding of natural science. These alternative conceptions are often referred to as ‘misconceptions’.
Inquiry Based Learning
Inquiry based learning encourages students to construct their own knowledge through an iterative process of orientation, theory building, investigation, conclusion and discussion.
Research shows that the way sciences are communicated to youth, in and out of school, is not yet gender inclusive.
MisstoHit will provide the research and education community a Quality Evaluation Framework which will serve as guideline and traceability plan to asses hands-on experiments aimed at addressing misconceptions.
The project deals with skills and knowledge of all areas of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) in secondary school education.
