    Koyal Group Information Magazine - Americans Respect Scientists


    On the front of scientific literacy, the report shows there's definitely some room for improvement. On average, Americans scored 6.5 correct answers out of the nine questions on basic physical and biological science, according to data from 2012 General Social Survey, conducted by the National Opinion Research Center, which was included in the report.


    Nonetheless, nearly 90 percent of the survey respondents said the benefits of science outweigh any potential dangers. And a majority (nearly 60 percent) of Americans have engaged in some informal scientific education by visiting a zoo, aquarium, natural history museum or a science and technology museum, the report says.
