A Scientifically Literate person should be able to:

  • ask, find, or determine answers to questions derived from curiosity about everyday experiences
  • describe, explain, and predict natural phenomena
  • read science articles in the popular press with understanding
  • engage in social conversation about the validity of claims and conclusions

Scientific literacy implies that a person can identify issues underlying national and local decisons and express positions that are scientifically and technologically informed. A literate citizen should be able to evaluate the quality of scientific information on the basis of its source and the methods used to generate it. Adapted from National Research Council (NRC)
