Abstract [en]

Relevance of science literacy and citizenship has bloomed during the last century due to the growing awareness of wicked problems. The increasing consciousness has resulted in international governmental agreements on integrated goals to collaborate on reversing these negative affects by using science and innovation. This, according to research, makes science and sustainability capital, for example knowledge, creativity and skills, essential for society’s development towards sustainable collaborations. Studies show that few students choose natural science education in higher education or careers which has resulted in staff shortage in science professions, something that is estimated to continue in the coming years. The reason for this is that students feel that science is for nerdy, smart and hardworking students, these attitudes affect students who don´t identify themselves as belonging to those groups making them feel inadequate as future science citizens. These feelings of inadequacy contribute to the diminishing interest in science and the relevance of science for future studies, vacancies and society. The aim of this PhD project is to explore how students experience the relevance of science education by using participatory processes as a method to introduce students in middle school to different science professions and thereby promote students’ science and sustainability capitals. 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 in their subjects and that allow students to take action in society.
