Abstract
Let’s begin this thinking about science education at the beginning: with the very meaning of science education. Science education may mean instructing in or learning about scientific information, knowledge, and methods in various disciplines. The goal here would be to equip our students with requisite knowledge and skills to become scientists, technicians, and science and technology educators. Our current system of science education is replete with this way of teaching science. And we need this form of education to cultivate future generations of scientists, technicians, and workers in science-related careers.
