Teaching science: we're doing it wrong | Danny Doucette | TEDxRiga
The world needs scientists and engineers more than ever, but our approach to raising them is backwards and ineffective. Drawing on his research and experience, high school physics teacher Danny Doucette challenges us to reimagine school science.
As a physics and maths teacher, Danny seeks to understand why science is challenging for students, and works to develop better ways to learn. He believes that scientific thinking empowers everyone to better understand their world.
