Science has brought about revolutionary changes in every walk of life. Unlike other subjects, science doesn’t simply pray for things to happen; rather it seeks to find out why things happen. The difference between modern world and ancient world is due to science. Now we are living in an age of scientific culture. Now one of the chief objectives of education is the development of desirable scientific attitude in the students. The aim of the study was to study the correlation between scientific attitude and location of the school going adolescents. The sample of the research was consisted of 200 class 10th students of different rural and urban schools of district Shamli (Uttar Pradesh). As a result of the research, it was determined that scientific attitude was dependent on the location of the adolescent i.e. rural or urban. The urban adolescents were found to have better scientific attitude than rural adolescents.
