‘Science is a way of thinking much more than is a body of knowledge’

Many students come to us from families and neighbourhoods where Science is definitely not in the forefront, nor is it integrated into the social fabric of their communities. At REACH we demonstrate that Science offers an opportunity to work on their own at home or with other people, to perform an experiment, to organize information, make links between ideas and understand the big picture that is the world’s past, present, and future

Not only does Science offer problem solving, it also prepares young people for the world of work. Carers such Nursing, Engineering and becoming an Electrician are linked closely to Science and the subject prepares students for the world ahead of them. 

The 'Science, Why Bother?' resource aims to help show students the explicit links between the science curriculum and the world of work.
