The authors comply with totally different disciplinary and nationwide traditions within the improvement and use of ethnographic methodologies. Prior to the senior secondary stage, all elementary and junior secondary faculty students study fundamental science. At the elementary stage, science is taught thrice per week with whole allocation time of about 105 min per week. At the junior secondary degree, college students take five science courses per week with an allocation time of about 200 min per week.

This shift in science education is resulting in an increase in the variety of college students leaving formal education with science qualifications and is beginning to address the challenges in life-long learning. Education insurance policies across Europe highlight the importance of the function science education plays in making certain citizens have the requisite knowledge and skills to allow them to turn into “informed important consumers of scientific knowledge”, in accordance with the OECD.

From 1994 till 2012, the web enrollment ratio for junior secondary schools increased considerably from 50% to 70% (Purnastuti, Miller, & Salim, 2013; Suryadarma et al., 2006).
