Abstract [en]

Several activities around the world aim to stimulate students’ interest in science, technology, engineering and mathematics. The European Researchers' Nights are one example. In this study it was investigated how seven students in the age 15-19 years responded to a visit at Researchers' Nights events. The students were interviewed and answers were analysed based on content. The results showed that the students were all positive to the visit and in most cases it was better than they had expected. The results were organised into the main themes: expectations versus experiences, interest in research context and relevance of research. Most of the students were positive about being a scientist and could even imagine a future science career. The contexts presented at the events were catching the interest of the students and were relating to the daily life of the students, or found to be of relevance for society. The study is a pilot and will be followed by a future study with more students included.
