About Us

pre In a study conducted by the Scientific Literacy Center on freshmen who declared science majors, half of these students scored 65% or lower on a scientific literacy test.  Students with a low scientific literacy score may not possess adequate STEM competencies required to be successful in a science major. The goal of the Center is to be a “one-stop-shop” for scientific literacy-related information for: all freshmen who are majoring in science, technology, engineering and mathematics high school students who are interested in majoring in STEM; and also college faculty members, high school teachers and counselors.
