Abstract

The purpose of this study was to assess the relationship of parental involvement in a student's education, as it relates to success in science learning. Success was measured in terms of student motivation, participation, and perception of science. Through an ethnographical designed study, observations were made of participants in a Saturday Science Academy. The research served to address several research hypotheses. The results generated from this study showed that positive reinforcement from a parent generates greater appreciation and understanding of science among children. In addition, it was revealed that effective enrichment programs which provide hands-on learning, promotes a greater perception of and increases enthusiasm in science learning.
