Being scientifically literate

Posted on: August 3, 2021

Here is what I read into Hank Green’s rant about people either not trusting science or trusting science too much.

Being scientifically literate is not just knowing scientific information. Nor is it only about being able to read and understand published science.

Being scientifically literate is about the processes of thinking and iterating so that preliminary and testable facts emerge. It is about being comfortable that such facts can change over time as a result of such processes.

Science is not just about knowing what, it is also about knowing how. Being scientifically literate is about knowing why we need to think and act in ways that move us forward.
