Science Across the World*— Exploring Science Locally and Sharing Insights Globally

by Marianne Cutler

Young people everywhere are growing up in an increasingly global society. Issues such as diet and health, energy and climate change affect everyone everywhere. It is increasingly important that young people have an appreciation of the science behind these issues, from their own local perspective as well as a global one if they are to participate fully in this global society. The Science Across the World (SAW) program can help young people cultivate a global perspective on contemporary science issues by increasing their knowledge and allowing them to communicate with other young people across the world.

This article explores aspects of the SAW program that both teachers and students find motivating and rewarding in developing a global dimension to their understanding of sciences issues.
