Abstract [en]

Science and technologhy for All (abbreviated as NTA) is a processed material that can be used by teachers as a support to engage students in science and technology. The purpose of this survey is to find out how preschool teachers are thinking aboat working with the NTA and which learning the children can achieve from the NTA-box.

Implementation of the survey is based on qualitative semi-structured interviews. Semi-structured interviews were chosen in order to avoid the yes and no answers, as well as to be able to put supplementary questions to the respondent.

The results show that it makes it easier for teachers to work with processed materials in the subjects of science and technologhy. The teachers felt that it gave them a personal growth in the subject and that it saved time in day-to-day operations. According to the teachers the children have been positive of the NTA-box and contributed to greater language development, conceptual understanding, and motor skills. The teachers could not see much difference between boys`and girls`interest in science and technology.
