`This course provided the student with the opportunity to study the relevance of science to them and their future; it develops their scientific literacy skills and provides them with the skills to make judgements about modern science based on risk and benefit. The traditional schemes teach the
facts (many irrelevant to what our students will meet in the future) and give a cursory link to society if you are lucky and if time allows!'
Richard Barber, Advanced Skills Teacher - Science, Moulton School Science College, Moulton, Northamptonshire
`More opportunity to discuss topical science. Up to date attractive resources provided.'
Peter Humphries, Curriculum Manager, Darlaston Community School, Darlaston, West Midlands
`Well done Twenty First Century Science. That's what I came into teaching to do and your course is allowing me to achieve this personal ambition and students achieve a more full and round Science education to prepare them for their future.'
Eleanor Owens, Abbeydale Grange School, Sheffield
