Reports findings from a qualitative study intended to understand how inner-city mothers perceive science. Compares these findings to argue that those mothers who had spent time doing science with their children were more likely to have a more personal, dynamic, and inquiry-based view of science. Discusses implications for science education reform. (Contains 42 references.) (Author/ASK)
