Maximizing the outcome for teenagers visiting a Science Center - with an application to Digital Technology
Dalarna University, School of Languages and Media Studies, Science communication.
2006 (English)Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years))Student thesis
Abstract [en]

I have asked teenagers (15 to 17 years old) which part of a science centre they liked the most and by analysing the answers I have seen that they prefer “body-on” and very open exhibits. These results combined with a front-end evaluation about children’s pre-knowledge about Digital Technology renders some recommendations when planning new exhibits. The front-end evaluation showed that the word “Digital Technology” did not really mean anything to children but they were very interested in the subject when asked more specifically. It also shows that girls care more about the historical and health aspects of science than boys. For both genders, the curiosity in technology is low if not initiated by something spectacular.
