This journal explores constructive connections between science education and civic engagement. It focuses on using unsolved, complex civic issues as a framework to develop students’ understanding of the role of scientific knowledge in personal and public decision making. Published articles include topical reviews, research studies on teaching and learning, and connections between science education and public policy. Since many pressing issues are not constrained by national borders, we encourage perspectives that are international or global in scope.
