Why is scientific literacy important?
raising a scientifically literate generation
Critical Thinking Skills
With the proliferation of social media and "fake news", science teaches us how to gather and interpret information, and to make informed decisions.
Our future economy depends on innovative advancements. A scientifically literate workforce will have the necessary skills to embrace and support this future.
