The research was performed in 5 primary schools which visited FGSC in Ankara in 2005 and it took 4 weeks. One hundred and twenty-two students from 6th, 7th and 8th grades were evaluated in this study. In obtaining interests of students from 6th, 7th and 8th grade towards science fields after the exhibitions in the FGSC, “drawing” method which is a qualitative approach was used.
