Neuroeducation, Science and Society research group has been present between the selected communications for the 14th Conference of the European Science Education Research Association (ESERA 21) organised by the Minho University and ESERA.It was held remarkably by a virtual conference from August 30th to September 3rd of 2021.

ESERA meetings are recognized as one of the most prestigious science education conferences internationally. In them, hundreds of researchers meet in various fields of science education and the presentation of communications at the highest level. The congress makes it possible to publicize the work of researchers and establish relationship between research and researchers, favoring the exchange of knowledge and forging new connections. They are, without a doubt, a great stage on which to represent our researchers and their institutions.

Our research on ESERA 21

Neuroeducation, Science and Research has presented several communications resulting from its research in three topics in scope..

In neuroeducation two works has been presented. On Measuring our own temperature scale(s). From thermal sensations to thermal concepts the neurophysiological bases of thermosensation and its influence on the concepts of cold and heat and the temperature scale are studied, showing a discrepancy in the way we estimate temperature.

The second communication is Preliminary results of a parametric analysis of emotions in a learning process in science . It analyzes which emotions and emotional flows in a scientific inquiry activity, finding relationships between different emotional responses and the different stages of learning. Both works are part of the predoctoral research work of R. Campillos and F. Agen (et al.) within the research group.

Science and Society

The science and society research topic is represented by the work of I. Rodríguez-Arteche et al.: Science in society from a classroom perspective: reflections from future secondary teachers. Student responses to the question “Why should we include content on the science-society relationship?” are analysed. The frequency of reasoning around attitudes and critical thinking is analysed as arguments in favour and highlighting the role of science in our society.

Regarding teacher training, S. Laso et al. presented Priority matters to be researched according to trainee primary education teachers. Focused on the training of primary school teachers, students on teacher training programs from several Spanish universities have participated. It focuses on investigating the identification and assessment of scientific questions in society that they consider to be focused on scientific research. Health and the environment are considered the most important, results that can be compared with surveys such as that of FECYT's Social Perception of Science..
