CHAPTER ONE

  • INTRODUCTION

BACKGROUND TO THE PROBLEM

In recent years, many studies have highlighted an alarming decline in young people’s interest for the science studies and mathematics {Eurobarometer,2005}. Considering that” young people interest in science is essential to our future prosperity “it is surprising that fewer young people are taking up key science studies.
