This paper presents Swedish data from a larger project, Relevance of Science Education – Second (ROSES). It is an international project which aims to explore students’ interest in, and motivation to learn, science and technology. The factor analyse show a group of students that believe it is important to learn about sustainability and that they can influence what happens. This also indicate some agency where students are willing to act as well as willing to sacrifice. Group of students in our material shows sign of Science Capital, a feeling of science being for them (Archer et al., 2010, 2015). It will be interesting to investigate this further and compare different schools and different countries in the aspect of Science Capital.
