Abstract: Science has social implications. Educating students in science involves more than the acquisition of ‘facts’ or the development of investigative skills. If students are to become independent and responsible citizens, they need to be capable of understanding scientific issues and their impact on society. An argument will be put forward in favour of a science education that considers the social implications of scientific activity on both a local and global scale. Teachers need to change traditional teaching methods to more innovative activities that are more child-centred and take into consideration the social and ethical aspects of the scientific enterprise.
