Your Vision For the Future of Science Ed

The ASCD Express is soliciting essays on the topic of what science education should look like in the 21st Century, or "Science on the Bleeding Edge," as they call it. Here's what they're looking for:

Considering that the space age began with the launch of Sputnik just over 50 years ago, what should a 'post-space age' science curriculum look like? As students hone their 21st century skills of critical thinking, problem solving, and innovation, how are they being prepared to use them in the crucible where science, technology, society, and economics meet in the world beyond school? How are schools exploring the challenges of science and society, and are these spurring innovations in how science is being taught? What role are private and public organizations playing in improving and influencing school science to prepare students to lead and live with science and technology in the years ahead?

Whatever your thoughts, keep them within the 600-1,000 word range. More information can be found here.
