Abstract

The big problems that contemporary society needs to address (e.g. climate change) challenge our traditionalidea of education and require to revise the goals of science education research. Such problems are indeedso complex as to require a wide range of competencies to be engaged in producing and implementingsolution strategies. Science education is forced to take into account the many dimensions that characterizecontemporary science and to face the task of bringing together the potential of all the different perspectives(Tasquier & Nonni, 2011). An example of this kind of research, concerning environmental problems, will bebriefly described and its first encouraging results illustrated.
