  • Abstract

Homi Bhabha Centre for Science Education was recently involved in a project titled Science Education for Diversity (SED). This was an international project funded by the European Union’s FP7 programme and initiated by the University of Exeter. It involved six countries – the UK, the Netherlands, Turkey, Lebanon, India, and Malaysia. The project aimed to understand the role of science education in addressing the mosaic of diversities in each of these countries and to design new approaches to address this diversity through science.The present article deals with how school curriculum has to be closely interconnected with students’ everyday experiences.
