How can we shape science citizens?

We invite the global science education community to join us and the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) for the online launch of the PISA 2025 Science Framework on Thursday 15 June.

What is the PISA Science Framework?

PISA (Programme for International Student Assessment) is run by the OECD. PISA measures 15-year-olds’ ability to use their reading, mathematics and science knowledge and skills to meet real-life challenges, and it’s used as a yardstick to assess education outcomes around the world.

In 2025, PISA will focus on Science. Which is why our assessment team, working alongside the OECD and a team of expert scientists and science educators from around the world, has been working hard over the last few years to develop the PISA 2025 Science Framework.

This framework will be used to design the assessment in Science to be taken by 15-year-olds in around 90 countries in 2025.

What is Shaping Science Citizens all about?

A key part of the Framework is that science educators are not only educating the scientists of the future, but also empowering learners to navigate and play an active role in tackling everyday challenges, such as climate change and public health, as “science citizens”.

We understand that learners’ needs are diverse and science teaching needs to reflect this; our curricula and resources enable every student to succeed, ensuring that learners feel they ‘belong’ and are inspired by a sense of awe and wonder when learning science. This approach is at the heart of the 2025 PISA Science Framework.
