The importance of including research projects in science teaching is discussed in this presentation. Previous findings related to the objectives of students following science courses, mainly chemistry and physics, are highlighted during this presentation as the basis and the reason to support the introduction of research in classroom teaching. E. de Silva's published work on successful introduction of research in physics and chemistry classes arc presented here with further analysis of ways to include research in science teaching in order to introduce changes to traditional teaching methods.
