Abstract: Enhancing student interest in science is a critical goal for science education. However, little is known about what makes science interesting to the students. This study examined the effect of three curricular elements (topic, activity, and learning goal) on student interest in science. The results suggest significant effect of activity types, among which the "hands-on" and technology-based ones tend to elicit higher interest.
