Logan Center for Education
We often don’t realize that we ask ourselves critical questions that involve science on a daily basis: Should I vaccinate my child? Should I buy a hybrid car? Do pesticides on food harm me and my family?
We all need to develop a basic level of scientific literacy in order to function as individuals and as a society. It is especially critical for our students in grades K-12 to gain a solid foundation in the sciences, because future job opportunities will demand it. As research advances, our healthcare and wellness will demand it, too. This reality drove ISB to take a unique step among research institutes and create the Logan Center for Education.
