Abstract

Metaphors play a crucial role in how we conceive and understand new concepts and ideas. Using insights from science education research on the teaching of energy, this article illustrates how the use of multiple metaphors can help present dry, abstract and complex science concepts to students in more lively, engaging and richer ways.
