This study uses the Theory of Planned Behavior (TPB) to investigate the attitudes and future intentions of middle-school students regarding STEM subjects, following their participation in robotics activities.
The project focused on students’ attitudes and intentions regarding STEM studies following their participation in either extra-curricular (such as competitions) or curricular activities involving robotics. The findings indicated positive effects on students' intentions to select STEM subjects in high school.
