Physics Education
written by Brian Woolnough
Factors that affect students' attitudes to school science and to careers in science are many and varied, depending on the individual student. This study analyses the attitudes of students from age 11 to 16 (n=654) towards such careers and the effect of school science on those attitudes. It discusses the implications for teaching in the context of motivational factors, and highlights the need to allow students space to match their own motivational needs.
