Major problems with our school science education and the way forward.
Our children are trapped in a cycle of memorizing facts through aimless reading and mindless repetition. This is not learning.
At Advanced Learning Space, our goal is to create a learning environment that better reflects how science is practiced today. We strive to create a space where students will learn science by “doing” science. In order to create this perfect learning environment, we looked at other systems around the world and incorporated their best practices into our learning space. From the engineering design best practices from MIT Edgerton Center to the insights published by The National Research Council (NRC), USA in A Framework for K-12 Science Education and the Next Generation Science Standards, we researched a wide range of established academic practices currently used in USA to determine what to include in our framework. The end result of all this hard work is a space and practices that are very different from what we have in our schools today. A place of true learning.
