That depends a lot on what you do consider for education. Getting to know more 
things is both science and education. I understand the target is a little 
different but I don't think it is that much.

If we consider we need two different coordinations it's fine to have a separate 
module but that would double quite some effort. We can see that KDE Science 
iniciative as a promoting KDE (overall) for science creation and let the 
programs to be organized as they are now. I'd say it's the science developers 
who should decide if they want to organize separatedly, but given that this 
iniciative is coming from promo I don't see a reason for splitting development
