Is the Science Curriculum Sexy Enough?

Discussion on how to save science in schools.


The number of pupils taking A-levels in science has dropped dramatically over the past 10 years, with university science departments closing through lack of demand. Should the curriculum be changed to make it more relevant to today’s youth? Join Claire Fox of the Institute of Ideas, Mary Ratcliffe of the Science Learning Centre South East, Ralph Levinson lecturer in science education, Conrad Lichtenstein Professor of Molecular Biology, David Perks Head of Physics and Julian Wigley Assistant Headteacher to discuss how to save school science.
