Abstract


This paper analyzes the perception that high school students have about of the teaching of science. It is a longitudinal study is carried on at the University of Valladolid. The inquiry wants to know the reasons because the students choose degrees of experimental sciences or social sciences. This research attempts to analyze the student’s assessments on science in undergraduate education. So then, we can design the tools and skills that we help to improve their training.
