Research papers on the Thinking Science Australia program and the related topic of Cognitive Acceleration through Science Education (CASE) are presented regularly to conferences throughout Australia.
The Thinking Science Australia project is now into its fourth year with more than 30 schools participating. Data from the first school to complete the program (our pilot school) in Australia have been published in June 2012 in the prestigious International Journal of Science Education. The paper reports improvements to students' thinking and their achievement in science and describes the effect of the program on teachers.
Professor Philip Adey, Emeritus Professor of Science, Cognition and Education, at Kings College is the founder of Cognitive Acceleration through Science Education (CASE). He has written numerous papers on the subject, including the ones listed below.
