Faith in science

11th January 2008 at 00:00

Science and religious education teachers at odds with each other's subjects are being helped by a unique scheme. The Science and Religion in Schools project provides books, lesson plans and background reading for teachers to help pupils discuss important issues surrounding science and different faiths. Pupils are encouraged to consider questions such as "Does God exist?" and "Is there life after death?" Martin Rogers, the project director, said: "The new key stage 3 curriculum is demanding more cross-curricular links and science teachers are going to have to get used to a more dialogic type of teaching. Scientists will have to broach religious education, an area outside of their expertise. We are expecting this to really take off this year."
