Abstract [en]

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.
