Science and Technology Education presents a snapshot from around the world of the current state of affairs regarding the utilization of school science practical work. The prominence of practical work in schools has developed globally over the years, and it appears there is a tendency for it to be given an increased presence in contemporary science curricula. This is often due to perceived advantages such as facilitating the learning of scientific theories, becoming familiar with the scientific method, allowing pupils to practice apparatus handling skills, and the fact that pupils frequently have a preference for hands-on learning.
