In 1998, the Nuffield Foundation funded report Beyond 2000 was published. Written and edited by Robin Millar and Jonathan Osborne, it proved to be exceptionally influential. It crystallized issues about the function and audience for school science and led to a major shift in the science National Curriculum. Twenty years later, what is its legacy and is there any longer room for its vision of scientific literacy for all? What do we now think should be the purpose of school science and who should decide such questions? The lecture will reflect on these issues with particular reference to the work of the Salters’ Institute, which is celebrating its Centenary in 2018.
