ABSTRACT

For long time, the academic performance of girls in science subjects in Shanderema Secondary School has been poor. There are very few girls whose names appear on hounors roll in the principal’s office. The number of girls pursuing science-related courses in institutions of higher learning has remained low. As a result, there are very few women professionals in science- related field, graduates of Shanderema.

The researcher has investigated the various environmental factors namely culture, religion and mass media that greatly contributed to this low performance. These factors have been effect on the academic performance of girls in science.

The research recommends to the community around Shandarema Secondary School, the government, non governmental organizations and other stake holders to weed out bad elements in the culture and beliefs of the people, and instill good values that can enhance the learning of science. The research also recommends to media houses to enrich their work with scientific articles that are educative.
