Abstract

The purpose of this paper is to present the preliminary results of the interactions within a group of young Mexican students who interacted online using an e-mail list. The participants were 40 students (24 females and 16 males) from eight different Mexican high schools. The students were selected through an essay about their interest in Science and a questionnaire about their demographic characteristics. The interactions took place from their selection date to participate in a Science for Young Mexican High School Students Workshop and continued during the one week workshop period and extended for around 15 months after they left to return to their homes and schools. During this period we categorized the exchanged messages into three categories and seven subcategories. Results showed that the social introspection and general greetings were the subcategories with most of the exchanged messages with 463 messages out of 720 in total.
