Sometimes it amazes me how science illiterate Americans have become. A survey of 2,200 people in the U.S. showed that 25% of respondents thought that the Sun moves around the Earth, as opposed to the heliocentric, and correct, explanation of the Earth moving around the Sun. Seriously? Seriously???? I know you can never get 100% of people to know the science, but something as basic as the Earth moving around the Sun should receive a higher than 75% correct rate. Sigh. I know I shouldn't be surprised. After all, there's a Flat Earth Society that still believes in a flat Earth.
Don't let your kids be science illiterate. Provide them with science learning opportunities. Talk to them about their science classes. Find science experiments to do as a family. Expose them to science and your kids will grow up with a high level of science literacy.
