CURRICULA SCANNING: scanning the various national curricula and textbooks on elements of futures thinking, specifically in science related subjects.
YOUNG VISIONS SCANNING: scanning and coding the future visions and ideas of youngsters (for example from the KinderTrendrede) to gain insight on how science & technology plays a role in their visions.
MANIFESTO DESIGN: designing a manifesto to create awareness and understanding about futures literacy in science education
An inspiring manifesto creating awareness, including simple recommendations how to futurize science education.
