CABOT, Esperanza Asencio. An approach to the conceiving science in contemporary settings from the scientific education perspective. Ciênc. educ. (Bauru) [online]. 2014, vol.20, n.3, pp.549-560. ISSN 1980-850X.

The improvement today of the educational systems emphasizes the need for scientific education, through its contribution to the formation of competent citizens, who can act reflectively on the increasing scientific and technology challenges. Scientific education's new vision recognizes science as a human enterprise in a continuous process of construction, framed by the social, political, economic, and historical context, which has led to its evolution. This paper deals with the this theme and it emphasizes the need for clarification of ideas about the conception of science and scientific methods, as well as identifying some false visions of the science, which are still transmitted in the teaching of science.
