The purpose of this study is to analyze students’ attitudes toward scientific field trips. This study will evaluate whether students have a positive, negative, or neutral attitude toward going on these scientific field trips. Also, using this questionnaire, the data collected from four dimensions – the learning aspect, the social aspect, the adventure aspect, and the environmental aspect – will help measure the students’ attitude toward scientific field trips. This study will encompass a questionnaire being passed out to multiple high school students from various grades and learning levels (regular, honors, AP, and IB). I will be unable to test one group myself because Chesterton High School is on block scheduling; I will therefore have a faculty member assist me in administering the test to that group of students.
