Accordingly, the study was designed as mixed research method. With the aim of defining the factors that affect the objectives of pre-service teachers to perform outdoor education activities within the scope of science courses, "Outdoor Science Activities Performing Scale", improved by Karademir (2013) was used. The eventual scale was applied to 1513 pre-service teachers studying at science teaching department.
