Berge, Maria; Danielsson, Anna; Lidar, Malena – Research in Science & Technological Education, 2020
Background: Physics is often seen as a discipline with difficult content, and one that is difficult to identify with. Socialisation processes at the upper secondary school level are of particular interest as these may be linked to the subsequent low and uneven participation in university physics. Focusing on how norms are construed in physics…

Priemer, Burkhard; Eilerts, Katja; Filler, Andreas; Pinkwart, Niels; Rösken-Winter, Bettina; Tiemann, Rüdiger; Zu Belzen, Annette Upmeier – Research in Science & Technological Education, 2020
Background: Recent developments in STEM and computer science education put a strong emphasis on twenty-first-century skills, such as solving authentic problems. These skills typically transcend single disciplines. Thus, problem-solving must be seen as a multidisciplinary challenge, and the corresponding practices and processes need to be described…

Lin, Kuen-Yi; Hsiao, Hsien-Sheng; Williams, P. John; Chen, Yu-Han – Research in Science & Technological Education, 2020
Background: STEM education has become a focus of research and teaching interest in recent years. However, not all scholars agree on the definition and purpose of STEM education. This paper summarizes related past research and suggests that, according to the requirements of Taiwan's educational environment, STEM education should focus on the…

Hetherington, Lindsay; Chappell, Kerry; Ruck Keene, Hermione; Wren, Heather; Cukurova, Mutlu; Hathaway, Charlotte; Sotiriou, Sofoklis; Bogner, Franz – Research in Science & Technological Education, 2020
Background: Creativity is often viewed as a fundamental educational capability. Science can play a role in nurturing creativity. Research suggests that creative pedagogy, including interdisciplinary teaching , can engage students with science. Previous studies into teachers' attitudes to science and creativity have been largely situated within…

Meyer, Corlia; Guenther, Lars; Joubert, Marina – Research in Science & Technological Education, 2019
Background: People's perceptions of scientists have repeatedly been investigated using the Draw-a-Scientist Test (DAST). The test is used to identify people's (stereotypical) images of scientists, which might affect attitudes towards science and science-related career choices. Purpose: The current study has two goals. (1) Applying the DAST at a…

Mohd Shahali, Edy Hafizan; Halim, Lilia; Rasul, Mohamad Sattar; Osman, Kamisah; Mohamad Arsad, Nurazidawati – Research in Science & Technological Education, 2019
Background: Previous studies have reported the impact of integrated science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM)-based programmes on students' interest towards STEM, however, only few have tracked the longitudinal impact of such programmes across the years. Purpose: This study examined the long-term impact of the "Bitara-STEM:…

Wang, Ya-Ling; Tsai, Chin-Chung – Research in Science & Technological Education, 2019
Background: Despite the growing body of research on self-efficacy, previous studies have failed to clarify exactly how it is constructed. Meanwhile, the literature indicates that, in Taiwan, junior high school students tend to show lower self-efficacy in learning science compared with elementary and senior high school students. Purpose: This study…

Buckley, Jeffrey; Seery, Niall; Power, Jason; Phelan, Joseph – Research in Science & Technological Education, 2019
Background: Substantial research highlights the differences between scientific and technological knowledge. Considering that learning is heavily focused on the acquisition of knowledge, it is important to examine the individual and systematic implications of these types of knowledge. Purpose: The purpose of this study was to examine the impact on…

Dyrberg, Nadia Rahbek; Holmegaard, Henriette Tolstrup – Research in Science & Technological Education, 2019
Background: The high rates of attrition in STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) programmes causes concern over a future shortage of graduates entering STEM careers. Students' first year experiences critically affect their motivation and are therefore also critical components of students' academic success in terms of retention,…

Paš, Maja; Vogrinc, Janez; Raspor, Peter; Udovc Kneževic, Nada; Cehovin Zajc, Jožica – Research in Science & Technological Education, 2019
Purpose: One area of science that will increasingly influence our society is biotechnology. An increasing number of modern biotechnological applications have provoked consideration of the ethical and social issues; therefore, it is important that the public is well-informed about them. Formal education in upper-secondary schools should help…

Stagg, Bethan C.; Verde, Michael F. – Research in Science & Technological Education, 2019
Background: Although plant reproduction is a core subject in school science curricula, botanical topics are typically unpopular with students. Integrating the arts into science subject matter has the potential to increase student interest and understanding. Educational theatre has shown particular promise in this area. Purpose: The study examined…

Feyzioglu, Burak – Research in Science & Technological Education, 2019
Background: In recent years, science curricula (chemistry, physics, biology, earth science, life science, etc.) in many countries have been prepared and applied according to the inquiry-based learning approach. Although the acquisition and application of the inquiry skills are one of the important objectives of the science curriculum, the inquiry…

Debs, Luciana; Miller, Kurtis D.; Ashby, Iryna; Exter, Marisa – Research in Science & Technological Education, 2019
Background: A growing number of educators have started exploring student-centered approaches to improve students' learning and satisfaction with courses and programs. While prior research shows a positive impact of such strategies on student learning, further exploration of the perceptions of traditional, lecture-based and other more inquiry-based…
