Abstract [en]

In order to make careers in science visible to girls, 24 girls from an uppendary school science program were chosen through a contest, to participate in a trip to Grenoble, France, and visit the research facilities ESRF (European Synchrotron Research Facility) and ILL (Institut Laue-Langvin:Neutrons for Science). The girls were presented a program, which included talking to researchers, doing experiments, presenting results and experiencing the environment where science is performed. In addition, 11 teachers participated in a similar trip in order to gain knowledge and experience to contribute to development of classroom material where science is brough into the classroom. Results show that attitudes towards science as a career choice was more positive after the trip than before. The teachers' trip resulted in several ideas that are still to be developed through a research-based design circle involving teachers, reserarchers and eventually students, in classroom activities making use of science and scientific results.
