"The National Science Foundation-funded "Scientific Literacy through Science Journalism" (SciJourn; "ttp://www.scijourn.org) project aims to increase the scientific literacy of high school students by involving them in a learning environment based on science journalism. The primary purposes of scientific literacy should be for personal life and for democratic citizenship. In other words, educators should be preparing young people to make personal decisions and participate in public debates related to science and technology."
