Description/Abstract

The purpose of this study was to look at student stereotypical images of scientists and provide a treatment that changes the student images of scientist. To do so, this study included two research questions; (1) How prevalent are stereotypical images of scientists in middle school students; and (2) To what extent does a Video Intervention Program (VIP) affect student stereotypes? The participants were 198 6th grade students. This study employed one group pre-test and post-test research design. Drawing-A-Scientists Test (DAST) instrument was used to assess students’ image of scientists. Video Scientists Checklist was developed assess the videos shown to the students. During six weeks of the VIP, the participants watched two videos in each week. A paired t-test was used to analyze the data. Most of the students perceived stereotypical images of scientists that include glasses, white lab coat, and chemistry lab equipment. After the VIP, the students developed more positive images of scientists (p
