Silfver, Eva – Cultural Studies of Science Education, 2019
This article examines how school students perform gender during a visit to a science centre where they programme Lego cars. The focus is on how students relate to each other--how they talk and what they do. Theoretically, the article draws on the 'heterosexual matrix' and a Foucauldian understanding of how power and knowledge are tightly…
