Résumé / Abstract

STS education implies that learners consider all three strands - science, technology and society -within a coherent educational experience. This article is not a comprehensive, historical overview of STS education, but rather an attempt to outline some key issues relating to STS education, and, in particular, capture the voice of those involved in major STS projects. For readers who wish to examine more comprehensive accounts, a bibliography is given. If there is one statement that captures the essence of the article it is this: 'It is the teacher rather than the content that characterises STS education'.
