Science Sundays: Paying Attention to the Importance of the Scientific Revolution Amid Cluelessness

Despite an ever-growing dependency on science and technology, we are seeing a decline in scientific literacy. Frederic Bertley discusses this duality and challenges us to become advocates for science. Highlighting wide-ranging technological advances, he emphasizes the necessity of basic scientific literacy and appreciation for the scientific process, whatever our career paths. 

Frederic Bertley, PhD, president and CEO, Center of Science and Industry (COSI), has worked in the area of preventive medicine in Haiti, Sudan, and the Canadian Arctic.

At the next #ScienceSundays lecture, @COSI's CEO will talk about the importance of scientific literacy #ASCDaily
