Dr. Y. Chakradhara Singh, C. Arundhathi Bai

Abstract :

 Science interest is a complex of interacting hereditary and environmental determinants producing predispositions or abilities in science. It is a potentiality for future accomplishment in science without regard to past training and achievement. Contents that stimulate interest involve science as–(a) a means to promote practical competence; (b) a social–economic enterprise; (c) a vehicle to enhance emotional experience; (d) an intellectually challenging endeavour; and (e) a vehicle to qualify for professional life. Additional mental factors that appear to be associated with success in science are intellectual curiosity, ability to apply knowledge to new situations, retentive memory and insight into abstractions. These attributes are similar to those found generally in creative and gifted individuals. Factors such as physical development, social and emotional maturity, moral character, attitudes, aptitudes and skills may also be the facets of science interest. In this context “A Study of Science Interest of Secondary School Students in West Tripura District” was conducted to measure Science Interest. For this purpose Descriptive survey method of research was used. A sample of 110 secondary school students were selected randomly from seven schools located in West Tripura district. The methodology includes ‘t’ test.
