Interest Enhancements to Science Experiments: Interactions with Student Gender.
Martinez, Michael E.
Journal of Research in Science Teaching, v29 n2 p167-77 Feb 1992
Summarizes comparisons of self-reported interest by gender and experimental condition for middle school students (n=101) who performed scientific experiments under conditions designed to vary across difficulty levels, social contexts, and scenarios of fantasy to realism. Findings indicate that boys were more attentive to aspects of experimental control, whereas girls were more attentive to the social contexts. (30 references) (JJK)
