Abstract [en]

Swedish students make their most crucial educational decision in the transition from compulsoryschool to upper-secondary school. Swedish upper-secondary school provides a number oftheoretical and vocational educational programs, including design and technology. Nonetheless,the interest for science and technology education of Swedish youngsters is decreasing, leaving thefuture demand for manpower in the technological sector much greater than the supply.This study identifies factors of importance when secondary-school students reflect on future studyoptions. A special focus is on the reasons why to choose or avoid technology education. A paperbasedquestionnaire was given to 320 students who already had made their choices to uppersecondaryschool. The questions deal with their reflections on e.g. the situation in school, relationto science and technology subjects, influences from parents and classmates, as well as futurecareer expectations. The answers were stored in a database making it possible to comparecombinations of themes, e.g., gender vs. interest in school subjects. The results show that boysfind the subject technology more fun and less difficult than girls do. Maybe this is the reason forthe majority of girls choosing a technology-oriented program to mention the father’s impact asimportant for their choice of education.
