You are invited to join Design Science Association on January 17th as Paul Taylor will speaks on “Truth, Lies, and Science Education.”
Educationalists recognize that, when a curriculum subject is taught to children in schools, be they public or independent, values are taught in conjunction with the curriculum content. What values are taught in science curricula? Where do these values come from, and to what do they owe their origins?

Paul Taylor spent nearly 20 years teaching in government schools (“public” schools) in England and Wales. His Master’s dissertation was on the subject of “Science and Spirituality in the National Curriculum”, looking at the way that spiritual values are taught in science lessons in British schools. He has now extended his research to include material relevant to the education scene in the United States of America. This presentation will help you to understand what, why and how children are taught science, and relates what the Bible has to say on this important subject.
