According to the CfE Experiences and Outcomes document:

By considering current issues of science, learners increasingly develop their understanding of scientific concepts and their capacity to form informed social, moral and ethical views. They reflect upon and critically evaluate media portrayal of scientific findings.

The two tabs below let you look at Level 3 SSERC chemistry activities to help teaching the two parts of this area.

SCN 3-20a

I have collaborated with others to find and present information on how scientists from Scotland and beyond have contributed to innovative research and development.

Antioxidants (Workshop) – A Range of investigations to look at antioxidant levels in fruits and teas (though the method can be adapted for any antioxidant).

Dye Sensitised Solar Cells (workshop) – An activity to show generation of electricity from plant pigments.

SCN 3-20b

Through research and discussion, I have contributed to evaluations of media items with regard to scientific content and ethical implications.

Antioxidants (Workshop) – A Range of investigations to look at antioxidant levels in fruits and teas (though the method can be adapted for any antioxidant).

Dye Sensitised Solar Cells (workshop) – An activity to show generation of electricity from plant pigments.

Shampoo (workshop) – Activity to make shampoo, involving steam distillation to extract natural essences.
