This study investigated the family environment and attitudes of 793 Northern Sotho speaking students (369 males and 422 females) whose ages ranged from 17 to 24 years (M age, 20 Yr.). These students were chosen at random from the Grade 12 school population in the Northern Province of South Africa. An attitude questionnaire and a family environment questionnaire were administered to collect data. The findings that indicate a very high correlation between family environment and attitudes toward Science are discussed.
