Abstract

The article reports on a 2017 survey of individual interests, scholastic experiences and opinions concerning science and technology of 2023 Italian students. The results are compared to a similar survey carried out in 2014, demonstrating a growing interest in science, especially for health and knowledge activities, and significant differences between males and females, especially in the area of health and care. This growing interest is linked to a good appreciation of the school activities that help students to plan their future, even if they do not always find a tangible use for them in everyday life. The most important element is the growing desire of adolescents to become scientists. In case of professions in the field of technology, there is a decline of males’ interest and an increase in females’. The opinions about science demonstrate a positive vision of science in various fields: knowledge, environment and development. However, this is not an unconditional trust, given that students recognize that science cannot give definite answers to all the problems it faces.
