dc.description.abstractThis study examines the effects of a novel Astronomy Board Game on students science performance, their attitudes towards learning Science through games and their perception of scientists. Post-primary students in Ireland and the UK of various ages (n=119) took part in the pilot trial. Data were collected via pre- and post-test, feedback questionnaire and focus groups. The results indicated significant improvements in student s learning of astronomy topics, suggesting the inclusion of games in the classroom affects student learning and perception of scientists.en_IE
