In- and out-of-school activities

The aim of In- and out-of-school activities and their influence on attitudes and expectations regarding science and technology was to examine whether student’s preference for
taking part in science and technology (S&T) -related activities in- and out-of-school was related to their attitudes towards science and scientists and their future professional aspirations.

The results showed that the greater the students’ preference for participating in S&Trelated activities, the more value they attributed to science work to improve people’s quality of life. Future professional expectations were associated to a greater extent with a preference for taking S&T-related subjects at school than with participation in S&T-related activities outside school. ...(+)



We discuss the need to analyse in depth the characteristics of these activities and what children and young people learn from participating in them, in order to define strategies that increase motivation and interest in learning about S&T and improving its teaching.
