My Journey of Science in Education

My science and education degrees have taken me on a lifelong journey in understanding how science works and how the practice of science is translated into education settings - taking me across sectors: from schools, to science museums, to government. I'm now doing a PhD in Australia investigating how students respond to pedagogies that move away from memorization toward more active thinking, discussions, and problem solving through representations, experiencing how science is actually practiced!
