Abstract

In the midst of challenges facing school science education in providing students with authentic learning experiences aimed at development of important life skills for future citizens, a project at the London 2012 Olympic Park is providing a unique opportunity for urban field visits in the built environment. The Field Studies Council is bringing science students to the ‘View Tube’, to engage in fierce debate over whether the Olympic Delivery Authority’s claims about ‘the most sustainable Olympic Games ever’ stand up to scrutiny. Students have been exploring narrative evidence thoughtfully and, to date, opinions are mixed.
