TARANGO, Javier; GUAJARDO-MORALES, Irma; MACHIN-MASTROMATTEO, Juan D.  e  VILLANUEVA-LEDEZMA, Armando. Preference and willingness for scientific-technological innovation in Mexican high school students. Inf. tecnol. [online]. 2020, vol.31, n.1, pp.91-102. ISSN 0718-0764.

This study analyzes the perception of 4456 high school students from the state of Chihuahua (Mexico), in relation to their preferences (understood as personal interest) and willingness (the desire to continue participating) towards scientific-technological innovation. The objective is determining the feasibility of generating extracurricular academic training environments (science clubs). The information was collected using a questionnaire and the data allowed the identification of the following moments in the study subjects: 1) previous experiences of scientific application and self-concept about creativity and creative people; 2) current interests in scientific-technological innovation; 3) knowledge and skills; and 4) provision of active participation in scientific environments. The results show that, when the four moments are analyzed as a method, only minor populations indicate constancy in taste and willingness to get involved in academic events related to innovation, which justifies the feasibility of opening promotional spaces for the science; On the other hand, a large population offers results of disinterest and lack of willingness to participate.
