ABSTRACT

It is vital that the next generation of young people develop scientific skills to ensure global environmental sustainability and the capacity to solve many of the global problems caused by narrow scientific thinking. The aim of this article is to discuss the interest on studying science of primary school students and how to engage them in science education. We explore the perceptions of 709 sixth-grade students from Spain aged between 11 and12 with regard to studying science using a questionnaire entitled Scientific Competencies. Our findings show that there is a growing interest in science motivated by the engagement of primary school students in scientific learning that is transferable to daily life. We discuss how this optimistic result could lead to more students becoming interested in pursuing a career in science. We conclude the article by discussing some of the challenges in relation to maintaining students’ positive attitude towards learning about science.

Jeg er ansat som adjunkt hos Læreruddannelsen i Jelling, hvor jeg underviser i matematik, specialiseringsmodulet teknologiforståelse, praktik m.m. Jeg har tidligere været ansat som pædagogisk konsulent i matematik og tysk hos UCL ved Center for Undervisningsmidler (CFU) i Vejle og lærer i udskolingen (7.-9. klasse) på Lyshøjskolen i Kolding. Jeg er ejer af og driver bl.a. hjemmesiderne www.lærklokken.dk og www.iundervisning.dk, ggbkursus.dk og er tidligere fagredaktør på matematik på emu.dk. Jeg går ind for, at læring skal være let tilgængelig og i størst mulig omfang gratis at benytte.
