Practical work in science We are working in partnership with the Gatsby Charitable Foundation and Wellcome Trust on a programme of work exploring how we can better enable all schools and colleges to engage their students with good practical work in science. The programme aims to track changes in practical work over time, to build a secure evidence base on which to inform science curriculum and qualifications reform, and to generate ideas for where and how practical science can be strengthened. Practical work is an essential part of science education. It gives students the necessary skills for higher education and employment, deepens their knowledge of scientific ideas and enables them to engage in the processes of science. Practical work can only flourish when teachers are confident in its use, schools and colleges are sufficiently resourced, and the practical skills gained by students are appropriately recognised in science qualifications. Current projects in this programme include:
