Gender plays an important role in learning process. Participation in a science classroom is often driven by the gender of the students. The goal of this research was to see the classroom participation of a science class of grade 5 from a gender lens which was seen from a student’s perspective. The aim was to see how gender plays a role when students participate in a science classroom. A qualitative research was conducted in a Government Primary School with 6 participants among whom there were 3 boys and 3 girls of grade 5.
