Citizen Science and Curriculum for Excellence

Citizen Science and Curriculum for Excellence

Want to discover a new quasar in deep space, count elephants in the Serengeti National Park from the comfort of your classroom or monitor invasive species in your local park? If so, then you will be joining forces with millions of people around the world who are discovering a passion for science through citizen science activities. Read on to find out more about the exciting ways that learners and their communities can engage with science as volunteers and
make a difference to their communities and world.

Science Benchmarks

The science benchmarks have been developed to provide clarity on the national standards expected within each curriculum area at each level. Their purpose is to make clear what learners need to know and be able to do to progress through the levels, and to support consistency in teachers’ and other practitioners’ professional judgements.

Science Experiences and Outcomes

Sciences Framework

The framework has been provided to give suggested ways in which the sciences curriculum can be delivered across the Broad General Education years ensuring progression across stages and levels.

The framework for Sciences has been organised by level and split by stage. Within each stage there are suggested bundles of Curriculum for Excellence Experiences and Outcomes. These E’s & O’s are then supported by:

  • Education Scotland Sciences Planning Tool
  • Suggested bundles
  • Benchmarks for Assessment
  • Resources to support learning
  • Exemplar IDL planners
