Comparative Study of Primary Science Curriculla in Finland and China in respect to goals for scientific literacy and 21st century competencies

I am a doctoral student at the Faculty of Educational Sciences, University of Helsinki. My doctoral thesis examines how the National Primary Science Curricula in Finland and China (a) specify the objectives of scientific literacy (b) have adopted the concept of 21st century competencies. The discussion is based on theories of curriculum and reflections on the three visions of scientific literacy. My research interests include comparative studies, science education, and curriculum studies.
