Description: This paper describes a study identifying factors related to gender differences in 10th grade science performance. An earlier study of 8th grade science performance found that gender differences were related to subject matter, student ability level, and frequency of hands-on lab opportunities. By 10th grade, male students performed significantly better on the physical science test and hands-on lab activities especially helped girls' performance.
