Promoting Scientific Literacy

Scientific literacy means understanding how science is done, what is science versus non-science, and how to evaluate claims we are exposed to on a daily basis. Without scientific literacy, we are unable to make informed decisions about crucial issues, such as climate change, toxic waste disposal, the space program, urban sprawl, genetic engineering, pollution, and myriad other issues facing people all over the world.
