Abstract

Science capital has been seen to influence pupils’ subject choice and attitudes to science. However, as often non-subject specialists, how does a primary teacher’s science capital impact on their attitude to, confidence in and teaching of the subject? This article describes a pilot study research with primary PGCE trainees at two HEIs. The results to date identify science capital differences in gender, but also how their own school science experience remains a big influence on trainees’ attitudes and confidence.
