ABSTRACT

Coronavirus: A Sputnik Moment for Science Education   [open pdf - 0B]

From the Executive Summary: "The coronavirus pandemic has tragically revealed the shortcomings of many institutions, but it has also exposed how poorly science and technology education have shaped the understanding of both policymakers and the public. Like the Sputnik satellite launch in 1957, the coronavirus pandemic is an opportunity to transform science and technology education--but powerful institutional and cultural forces are working against such a goal."
