Description

Re-imagining the Teaching of Science – a redemptive approach

Roger will guide us in our thinking about how we can shape our teaching of Science in such a way that it leads to the transformation of the heart, mind and importantly, the life of every student. Teaching Science redemptively seeks to place the finished work of Jesus as the defining feature and end goal of Science education. It is his prayerful desire that such an approach will lead those students who are gifted in their understanding of Science to use this knowledge to bring about redemption and healing wherever God chooses to use them.
