Final Report - POPBL (School Science Teaching by Project Orientation - Improving the Transition to University and Labor Market for Boys and Girls)

Project ID: 42936
Funded under: FP6-SOCIETY

Abstract

Young people's interests for science and technology are found to be weak for an industrially and scientifically oriented region such as Europe. The POBL project aimed to show new ways of how to foster pupils' interest in science by school science teaching. Their final report concludes that POPBL is clearly capable of increasing motivation for learning and knowledge acquisition, including the group of originally 'average' pupils. This distinguishes POPBL from other science teaching initiatives being more concerned about the 'better' pupils ('elite').
