Abstract

Health and the environment are important learning areas in science education, and they are growing in importance. Not only do they have high social relevance, but also they are close to students’ interests and needs. They provide an opportunity to open up science to individually relevant questions and to promote both boys’ and girls’ commitment to science education.
