The purpose of this study is to develop an attitude scale towards daily life chemistry for secondary school students. The pilot study carried out with the participation of 426 secondary school students. The process of developing the Daily Life Chemistry Attitude Scale consists of a literature review, creating an item pool, taking expert opinions and a pilot study. The Cronbach Alpha reliability coefficient of the scale was calculated to be 88 and the conclusions of the factor analysis supported the structure with 5 subdimensions. In other words, the final version of the scale was found to be reliable and valid in terms of determining the attitudes of secondary school students towards daily life chemistry.
