Why is Science Important?

The most important question any science teacher should ask themself – because if we don’t have a good answer, what are we doing in the classroom? I heard about this after listening to the Guardian’s Science Weekly podcast. Alom Shaha, a science teacher and film-maker, went into the pod to promote and discuss his project: Why is Science Important?

The result of his efforts is a website full of great answers to the question, along with a 30-minute film.

Watch the full film here:
