About the project
This PhD project aims to explore how students experience the relevance of science education by using participatory processes to introduce students in middle school to different science professions and thereby promote students’ science and sustainability capital. The intention is to collaborate with teachers and science professionals and explore how students' interests and attitudes towards natural science subjects are affected by creative, co-creation activities that are integrated into their subjects and allow students to take action in society.
The project is part of the research group Studies in Science, Environmental and Mathematics Education (SISEME).
