Abstract: “One of the main problems facing European society is the decline of students who choose scientific or technological careers after finishing high school. Encouraging interest in science is essential to approach the current problem of shortage of scientific vocations. This paper describes a citizen science experience accomplished in a school located in the center of a city in the North of Spain. 42 Secondary students completed a questionnaire based on a previous study by RecerCaixa. The results show a significant positive change in the student’s perception of science and scientists. In addition, students highly appreciated their participation in the activity.”
