 +Despite our best efforts, all the evidence shows that most kids go through school holding deep-rooted ideas that bear no relation to our modern understanding about the natural/​physical world in which we live.
 +More than fifty years of research, and millions of data points, show that our k-12 education systems and teaching/​text-book resources have failed to remedy this problem. ((Teaching of science in NSW - https://​www.youtube.com/​watch?​v=l265OGIGKmo)) (([[https://​nsf.gov/​news/​news_summ.jsp?​cntn_id=131403&​org=NSF&​from=news|National Science Foundation]])) (([[http://​www.textbookleague.org/​103feyn.htm|Judging Books By Their Cover - Richard Feyman]]))
 +Recent Australian research by Dr Derek Muller (//​University of Sydney//) ((How to teach science - https://​www.youtube.com/​watch?​v=l265OGIGKmo)) suggests that the conventional,​ explicit teaching of STEM (science) in NSW schools mostly perpetuates and re-enforces fundamental misconceptions about how the world works. ((Dr Derek Muller'​s PHD thesis - http://​www.physics.usyd.edu.au/​super/​theses/​PhD(Muller).pdf))
