How science works

How Science Works, by James Williams
How Science Works, available now from all good bookshops!

My letter to the Observer was this week’s lead letter for their ‘Big Issue’ series – Responding to a nice article last week on science in the media, I argue for the retention of some form of How Science Works in the new national curriculum. This is essential as my own research is showing – many science graduates do not know ‘How Science Works’  and I think this is problematic in schools where we have to deal with many issues that may be seen as controversial in science.

The letter can be read here: http://www.guardian.co.uk/theobserver/2011/jul/31/the-big-issue-science

Of course, sopme may say that my interest is more to do with book sales…
