The Ontario Science Centre’s Science Literacy Survey reveals optimism in the role that science and technology can play in solving humanity’s greatest challenges and in improving lives around the world. Results from the 2018 survey show that 74% of Canadians believe that science and technology will play a major role in solving our planet’s most pressing issues.
Science centres, being among the most trusted sources of accurate information (90%), are called on to play a vital role in helping Canadians understand, engage with and use scientific knowledge in their day-to-day lives.
Initiatives such as the Science Literacy Survey provide important insight into the beliefs and attitudes that Canadians hold towards science and technology.
