Abstract [en]

Many different actors, including government, academy and industry, are engaged in school- and recruitment-STEM-initiatives. The aim of this article is to shed light on industrial initiatives, what actors are involved and what different repertoires are being used when industrial actors describe the initiatives and their engagement in them. The data collected consists of web-materials where industrial actors describe their engagement in STEM-initiatives and provide reasons for their engagement. The method for analysis is discursive psychology. The results show that a variety of constellations of industrial actors are engaged in STEM-initiatives and that the initiatives draw on a variety of discursive resources, e.g. competition resources, ‘fun’ teaching resources, role-model resources, industrial owned upper secondary schools, and industrial visits for school classes. In our analysis we identify the following interpretative repertoires which are used when the industrial actors describe the reasons for their engagement in the initiatives: 1) The securing competent labor repertoire, 2) The bright future for the world repertoire, 3) The Securing economic growth for the country or region (e.g. in competition with others) repertoire, 4) The increasing knowledge of the importance of science repertoire, 5) The general increase interest in science repertoire, and 6) The increasing knowledge in science repertoire. The use of these repertoires, and the fact that they work in relation to schools/teachers, are in the article discussed with a starting point in a combination of two prevailing discourses in the society – the “STEM-crisis”-discourse and the “Science as a savior” discourse.
