van Tuijl, Cathy; van der Molen, Juliette H. – International Journal of Technology and Design Education, 2016
Although science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) study paths and STEM work fields may be relatively difficult and therefore not appropriate for everyone, too many children prematurely exclude STEM-related study and work options, based on negative images of the field or negative ability beliefs. In the present article, we provide an…
