  Science education - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Science education is the field interested in sharing science content and process with individuals not traditionally considered part of the science community.
These science educators take the point of view that many groups (such as women, non-Asian and non-Jewish ethnic minorities, and the disabled) have been traditionally marginalized and excluded from science, to the detriment of the field.
In UK schools science is generally taught as a single subject science until age 14-16 then splits into subject specific A levels (physics, chemistry and biology).

 Liberal arts of LIS, Buckland
For this reason any school of LIS in a research university that held the conception of LIS of this book ought to be closed or, at least, moved out of the research university.
Schools of LIS in the USA have historically avoided offering courses for other departments' students, with some narrow, utilitarian exceptions: service courses in children's literature for education students and, occasionally, courses of bibliographic instruction.
In US terminology, the school would become a liberal arts department because the topics to be studied would be studied in their own right.

Science policy projects are funded from private and public sources, according to context but the source of funding never influences the conduct or outcome of a science policy project.
For instance, secondary school pupils at Reepham High School in Norwich are working with BT on a computer controlled telescope and robotic dome, while 90 schoolchildren at Deeplish Primary School in Rochdale have undertaken a "Fit for Life" project with the University of Manchester that includes studying how the human heartbeat responds to exercise.
