Bozdin and Gerhinger (2001) and Flick (1990) reported that visits from scientists in classrooms resulted in a decrease in many stereotypical beliefs about scientists, indicating that children’s images of scientists can indeed be influenced by a visit from a scientist. However, it cannot be assumed that these relationships are successful in every classroom. While much is known about mentoring new teachers in science, the research concerning scientist mentoring individual students remains unexamined.

I was exploring a topic which was of interest to me, and of use to my work colleagues. Indeed they became part of my project, which helped enormously in developing my skills of critical thinking, as they were always there ready to question what I was doing. Researching and writing up my research has provided an additional dimension to my work as I have become more knowledgeable about past and current policy and I am able to relate it to theory and academic literature. The opportunity to study for a doctorate presented itself when I had just returned to work full time after six months maternity leave and a year working part-time.
