Introduction to School Science

Grade
Grades 7 to 10.
Syllabus
The syllabus used is based on a typical IGCSE syllabuses for the three sciences.
Activity Courses
All the science courses have a variety of activities:

The strategies integrated into the courses were developed by cognitive scientists from various universities in the U.S.A.

They call themselves The Learning Scientists, this is how they introduce themselves:
“We are cognitive psychological scientists interested in research on education. Our main research focus is on the science of learning. (Hence, “The Learning Scientists”!)”

A number of thinking routines are introduced during the courses. These are based on the Project Zero’s Thinking Routine Toolbox developed by Harvard’s Graduate School of Education.

The courses are integrated with Learning Strategies and Thinking Routines in addition there are active Forums discussing the courses.

The experiments and models section is based on a syllabus I developed using the Concord Consortium as a source.

The courses consist of experiments and data analysis using simulations, for example from PHET, NetLogo, Concord and other sources.
For the modelling I use the Sagemodeller from the Concord Consortium.
For the data analysis I use the Common Online Data Analysis Platform CODAP.

In the near future we will be organising online events using the EN-ROAD simulation from Climate Interactive.

There are various Forums on School Science which you can use to ask questions, start discussions or generally comment on the courses.
