This book shows how a wide range of contexts for learning science can be used outside of the classroom, and includes learning:

  • at museums, science centres and planetaria

  • from newspapers, magazines and through ICT

  • at industrial sites and through science trails

  • at zoos, farms, botanic gardens, residential centres and freshwater habitats

  • in school grounds.

With contributions from well known and respected practitioners in all fields of science education and through using case studies, Learning Science Outside the Classroom offers practical guidance for teachers, assistant teaching staff and student teachers involved in primary and secondary education. It will help enable them to widen the scientific experience and understanding of pupils.

The advice in this book has been checked for safety by CLEAPSS.

'This book will be welcomed by pragmatists and environmentalists alike. It is a passport to taking children out of the classroom and beyond into the real world: a real advocate for life-long learning.' -- Liz Lakin, Primary Science Review
