If so, then, maybe you'll staty tuned. An excerpt from something I'm working on:
. . . . As conceptualized here, science curiosity is not a transient state (see generally Lowenstein 1994), but instead a general disposition, variable in intensity across persons, that reflects the motivation to seek out and consume scientific information for personal pleasure.
A valid measure of this disposition could be expected to make to make myriad contributions to knowledge. Such an instrument could be used to improve science education, for example, by facilitating investigation of the forms of pedagogy most likely to promote the development of science curiosity and harness it to promote learning (Blalock, Lichtenstein, Owen & Pruski 2008). A science curiosity measure could likewise be used by science journalists, science filmmakers, and similar professionals to perfect the appeal of their work to those individuals who value it the most (Nisbet & Aufdheide 2009). Those who study the science of science communication (Fischhoff & Scheufele 2014; Kahan 2015) could also use a science curiosity measure to deepen their understanding of how public interest in science shapes the responsiveness of democratically accountable institutions to policy-relevant evidence.
Indeed, the benefits of measuring science curiosity are so numerous and so substantial that it would be natural to assume researchers must have created such a measure long ago. But the plain truth is that they have not. “Science attitude” measures abound. But every serious attempt to assess their performance has concluded that they are psychometrically weak and, more importantly, not genuinely predictive of what they are supposed to be assessing—namely, the disposition to seek out and consume scientific information for personal satisfaction.
We report the results of a reasearch measure consciously designed to remedy this research deficit....
