Science Literacy != Science Trivia

I’ve said so before before, and given my thoughts on what does qualify there.

Now The Intersection seems to agree and asks for more thoughts on what constitutes science literacy.

But mainly I just linked for the groovy cartoon.

Anyway, I’ll just re-iterate that science literacy means ability to solve problems using mathematical & scientific tools, basic understanding of the methods & philosophy of science. That part is easy.
