“Ways to Kindle the Interest in Technology” is based on the core assumption that there are phases and times in the socialization process of children and adolescents, which are significant for the child’s (technological) socialization. Whether young people start to get interested in technology depends on various factors, which are describable as constellations of conditions. The study aims at the collection and description of such constellations. With the potential times for intervention in mind, an investigation is made of how technology-relevant capabilities and attitudes change during socialization; focusing on the fact that women are underrepresented in the sector of technology, a special spotlight is put on the gender specifics.
