In science education research so far, a kind of dichotomy between science experts and the lay public has often been popularly presupposed, and little attention has been paid to those in between, who continue to engage in scientific practices after finishing their schooling as non-professional scientists. They can be called ‘amateur scientists’, and are the target of this study. The purpose of this study is to explore possible or probable factors (internal motivation and socio-cultural contexts) by which amateur scientists can continue to commit themselves to their scientific practices, and generate a hypothetical model of these factors and their interrelationships. In order to tackle this issue, investigations were made to identify the motivations of amateur scientists and the socio-cultural factors around them through a semi-structured interview (using the Modified-Grounded Theory Approach). A hypothetical model was then generated, explaining the reasons why these amateur scientists could continue to devote themselves to their favorite scientific practices.

本研究の目的は,成人の科学教育を「充実志向」の視点から検討するために,アマチュアの科学実践において好奇心がどのように存在しているかを明かにすることである.そこで,ハイアマチュアを対象に半構造化インタビューを実施し,M-GTAを用いて分析した.分析結果より,ハイアマチュアの科学実践は,好奇心だけでなく,独自のこだわりや社会的要因と密接に関係している活動であることが示された.そして,その活動過程で,好奇心が醸成されたり,愛着意識の活性化によってリソースが捻出され,さらに活動が継続するという互いに支え合う関係が構築されている.

本研究の目的は,「科学実践に関わる市民」を捉える新しい理論枠組みの検討である.先行研究を参考に検討し,「科学者」と「市民」の間に「科学アマチュア群」を定位し,その中を,知識・技能のレベル,活動に対する積極性,関与している期間の3軸を指標として区分することで,多様な「科学実践に関わる市民」を捉える枠組みを提案した.

The current study is one of the hypothesis verification studies of previous work (Kimura, 2017), in which a hypothetical model, explaining why amateur scientists could continue their scientific practices, was generated through a qualitative research method, the Modified Grounded Theory Approach (M-GTA). The present study examined common elements enabling Japanese amateur entomological scientists to continue their scientific practices in the hypothetical model, by using a quantitative research method. A total of 70 amateur entomological scientists voluntarily participated in a questionnaire survey, consisting of 3 attribute questions and 19 main questions, which identified a total of 21 essential elements (‘categories,’ ‘concepts,’ and ‘processes’) of the model. The data obtained was analyzed quantitatively. The findings revealed that the 21 elements could be divided into three groups: Thirteen elements were shared among the Japanese amateur entomological scientists, whereas 5 elements were not, while the remaining 3 elements were in-between.
