This study is related to results gained from "Primary School Students' Science Summer" project which was supported by TUBITAK as part of Science and Society projects. Primary purpose of this study is to generalize such projects and sharing with scientists for shedding a light on further studies by determining how science and art activities were being evaluated from students' point of view. The second purpose of the research is to state if getting involved in such projects generates a positive change on attitudes of students towards science. It was found that students' views were generally positive about the activities done during five days of summer science school. (C) 2011 Published by Elsevier Ltd.
