About Science Bits
Behind the Science Bits project there is a multidisciplinary team of science teachers, educators, video editors, and multimedia professionals. Our goal is to provide teachers with tools that promote a high quality science education. Science is not a body of immutable facts that must be memorized, but an exciting way of obtaining new knowledge and understanding the world around us. Hence, we adhere to the constructivist 5E learning model, which promotes real understanding and engages students in science learning while helping them understand the relevance of science to their lives. We would like to play an active role in promoting the change from a transmission educational model, based on the transmission of facts from teacher to learner, to a constructivist one, based on inquiry, discovery and learning-by-doing. We think the best way to bring about this change is to empower teachers with user-friendly tools of great educational potential. For more information visit: http://www.science-bits.com/
