Simon Taylor, from the University of Waikato, discusses how the context of a bio-dome topic has invigorated learning in science classes. He draws on recent developments in exploring socio-scientific issues and how a group of teachers have overcome pedagogical challenges, supporting their students to be creative, innovative and capable of creating knowledge collaboratively. He examines student and teacher perceptions, and a how a developed model of socio-scientific principles could support future teacher planning and practice.
