Abstract

Research on scientific creativity has been widely carried out. This study aims to determine whether is there any difference in scientific creativity between boys and girl students. These things are important to research, because the effectiveness of the learning process can be further improved if educators know the characteristics of their students.

The research subjects were 114 junior high school students in grade 9, has been selected using a purposive sampling technique. The research data were analyzed descriptively, and statistically using the independent t-test.
