2010 (English)In: Socio-cultural and Human Values in Science and Technology Education / [ed] Borut Lazar & Robert Reinhardt, Ljubljana: Anni d.o.o, IOC Trzin , 2010, 1-9 p.Conference paper (Refereed)
Young people’s interest in science and technology and their attitudes towards those knowledge fields has been an object for research for a long time. Current research points to cultural aspects and informal learning as important to understand these questions. In this study I use content analysis to compare what secondary students want to learn about in science and technology with what international popular science television program broadcast and present important similarities. I discuss the results from media theory as modernity having an effect on young people’s experiences and that this can be important in understanding the way they encounter school science.
