- Using your current knowledge of science, come up with a definition of what you believe it means to be scientifically literate. Think about what it means to:
- Understand Science
- "Do Science"
- Communicate in Science
- Share ideas in science
- Watch the following YouTube video and revisit your definition of scientific literacy. After watching the video, re-write your definition of scientific literacy and write down any questions you may have. Write your initial ideas for how data intensive documents play a role in scientific literacy.
