VA Report 2008:3
The European initiative Researchers’ Night in Sweden is coordinated by VA. As part of the 2007 activities a drawing contest ”Draw yourself as a researcher” was arranged. The contest was designed by the member of The Researchers’ Night Advisory Board Professor Ilan Chabay, GC+, the Gothenburg Center of Public Learning and Understanding of Science at Chalmers University of Technology and the University of Gothenburg. The contest attracted about 3.000 contributions from 6–12 year-old school children.
A sample of these drawings has been analysed by Lori Adams Chabay, Ph.D. Her analysis, conclusions and recommendations are presented in this report.
