Abstract

This study aimed to identify the impact of a proposed science curriculum based on informal learning on the academic achievement of ninth-grade students and their attitudes towards science majors in Al-Qunfuthah Governorate during the COVID-19 pandemic, and thus answer the following questions: What activities represent informal education in science that can be included in the science curriculum? Is there a statistically significant difference in the attitudes towards scientific disciplines for ninth-grade students due to the proposed curriculum based on informal education? Is there a statistically significant difference in the educational attainment of ninth-grade students due to the proposed curriculum based on non-formal education? The researcher used the experimental method, where the study sample was randomly selected and numbered (29) students in the control group, and (29) students in the experimental group. The researcher designed the science curriculum to include activities based on informal education in science, and it was taught to students in the experimental group, while the control group will study the formal curriculum of science for the third intermediate grade. The researcher also prepared a measure of attitudes towards the sciences major, and a test to measure the students' academic achievement.
