In partnership with the Society of Biology, Royal Society of Chemistry, and Institute of Physics


As part of the design process for this project a research summary was produced for each of the three approaches; Argumentation, Model-based inquiry and Science in the workplace.  

Each research summary includes the key findings of related research, the implications of the research for using this approach in lessons which include practical work, and suggested interventions.

These research summaries were used to directly inform the writing of the resources and as a starting point for the introductions to each approach.
