About ScienceBlogs' Participation
The bloggers and readers at ScienceBlogs are engaged in the internet's largest conversation about science. It's a conversation we think everyone should be interested in.
Public interest in science is high, but public understanding of science is still a work in progress. Helping teachers to build scientific literacy, engagement, and excitement among their students is one way to cultivate a public that can hold its own in the conversation and that wants to be a part of it.
We believe that increasing science literacy is a pre-condition for progress in the 21st century. The classroom is a good place to start.
