Students were asked to rate their interest and attitudes after participating in a school-year engineering curriculum unit, as compared to their remembered interest and attitudes of the summer before. The survey was developed from earlier research by the authors, as well as from surveys of science attitudes reported in the literature (Germann, 1988; Lichtenstein et al., 2008; Owen et al., 2008; Weinburgh & Steele, 2000). We report on the development and testing of the survey. We also report on our methods of analysis and results, looking at differences between the treatment groups as well as the moderating effect of student demographics.
