Abstract [sv]

I denna studie undersöks intresset för olika områden inom kemi ur ett genusperspektiv bland elever i gymnasieskolan.En enkätundersökning bestående av frågor om intresset för olika specifika kemiområden utfördes vilken elever från olika gymnasieprogram, med olika generellt kemiintresse och i olika studieår besvarade. Svaren från enkäten utvärderades både kvantitativt genom hypotestest och ANOVA samt kvalitativ genom en operationaliseringsmetod.Resultaten av studien visade på signifikanta skillnader mellan flickor och pojkar i deras respektive intressen för olika områden kopplade till kemiämnet. Flickor var mer intresserade av ämnen kopplade till hälsa och det som i akademin klassas som biokemi. Pojkar å andra sidan visade ett större intresse för explosiva och farliga kemikalier samt för kemiska stridsmedel.Resultaten av studien korrelerar med tidigare studier och följer ett stereotypiskt könsidentitetsmönster för hur pojkar och flickor ska bete sig och visa intresse för.

Abstract [en]

In this study, the interest in different parts of the chemistry subject is investigated with a gender perspective among pupils in Swedish upper secondary schools.A survey consisting of questions regarding interest in specific areas of the chemistry subject was carried out which pupils in different study programs with different general interest in chemistry and in different study years, replied to. The replies from the survey were both analyzed quantitatively using hypothesis testing and ANOVA and qualitatively using an operationalization method.

The results of the study showed that there was significant difference between girls and boys in their respective interest for some of the areas connected to chemistry. The girls were more interested in areas connected to health and what is regarded as biochemistry in the academy. Boys on the other hand displayed a larger interest in explosive and hazardous chemicals as well as chemical weapons.

These differences correlates with previous studies and follow a societal stereotypical pattern of how girls and boys should behave and have affection for.
