A view from history shows us that the definition of science literacy is ever growing in both meaning and application. Currently, scientific literacy defines what the public should know about science in order to live more effectively in respect to the natural world (DeBoer, 2000).  Broadly, my research looks at science literacy within the non-STEM major student population and how we can increase their scientific literacy through authentic research experiences.
