Nature of science in Science in the National Curriculum of Seychelles: Recommended policy and practice changes (2009)
Nature of science (NOS) is discussed as encapsulating the science education community's consensus on =what science is'. This is a fundamental component of science education. Document analysis of Science in the National Curriculum of Seychelles and Seychelles National Curriculum Framework reveals an under-representation of NOS. We argue that the nature of science should be a strong focus of science education in Seychelles because it will help people to increase their understanding of science and the practice of science.
