Baram-Tsabari, Ayelet; Yarden, Anat – Research in Science & Technological Education, 2008
Many of the explanations for girls' disinterest in physics focus on the role of the educational system in creating this situation. Here, we use evidence from free-choice science learning settings to study if this lack of interest is also expressed in non-school settings. Three sets of self-generated questions raised by children, adolescents and…
