Students' Views of Scientists and Science: Results from a National Study.
Barman, Charles R.
Science and Children, v35 n1 p18-23 Sep 1997
Describes results from a survey of elementary school students' perceptions of scientists, school science, and the application of science in daily life. Students drew scientists with various stereotypic features such as lab coats, and most were depicted as white males. Most students pictured themselves studying science by doing an activity. Includes classroom resources for enhancing the science curriculum in light of the results. (PVD)
