I teach science at a large suburban high school, and science is the 2nd largest department in the building. We have a lot of quality educators - many of whom had careers in industry or other areas before coming to teaching. And many of them are frustrated. VERY frustrated. Our students are simply not engaged in science. Low-level students don't see the point, college-prep students don't care, and honors-level kids just want an A at any cost. They don't want to do well for the sake of learning. We want to see our kids have an interest in science and be engaged with the content. Many of us have tried inquiry-based learning, outdoor labs, etc. to foster the students' interest, but we've had no luck at all. Meetings are becoming bitter discussions of how "our kids don't care about anything, so it doesn't matter what we do!" (yes, more than one colleague has said that) Does anyone have any ideas about how we can improve student engagement in science? We're honestly out of ideas!
