The book Science and New Generations, edited by Federico Neresini, Stefania Crovato and Barbara Saracino, deals with the results of ROSE – Relevance of Science Education, an international comparative research project meant to shed light on factors of importance to the learning of science and technology (S&T) – as perceived by the learners, specifically by students towards the end of secondary school (age 15). The book has been produced in collaboration with the UNESCO Venice Office – UNESCO Regional Bureau for Science and Culture in Europe and the Conferenza Nazionale Permanente dei Presidi delle Facoltà di Scienza e Tecnologia.
