    Achieving a positive attitude towards science and technology is seen as a highly important factor within the VTB-Pro program. Besides a coherent offer of knowledge and skills in science and technology and insights into inquiry-based learning, the VTB-Pro program calls for explicit attention to a more positive attitude towards science and technology as an underlying and overarching component in the professionalization of primary school teachers. This part of the book describes the scientific research that was conducted within the VTB-Pro program on the concept of primary school teachers’ attitude towards science and technology and on underlying factors that may contribute to the enhancement of these attitudes.
