It is widely agreed by many that COVID-19 has had a significant impact on education on a global scale. It has impacted virtually every facet of society, including social, cultural, economic, and educational factors. Changes in teaching objectives and methodologies are the main ways that COVID-19 has affected science education. This study explored the vital roles science educators’ would play in the post-COVID era. The study found out among others that science educators perform a variety of important roles in the post-pandemic environment, including those of science communicators, critical thinkers, knowledge creators, disruptive innovators, advocates against misinformation, and future-ready educators. The study recommended among others strategies on the basis of worldwide research outcome of science education on how to improve science education in the post COVID-19 Era; for science teachers to be able to contribute to research-based and evidence-based practices in their areas of expertise, teachers should also be supported financially through research grants and financing.
