Use good popular science resources to improve the scientific literacy of young people

According to reports, various popular popularization bases across the country have carried out unique popular science activities, which has received widespread attention from all walks of life.At the Earth Science Experimental Center of Central South University, the children were observed for the first time under a microscope, and the rock thin slices were transparent for the first time.It is clearly seeing the distribution of pipeline networks such as underground electricity, water, gas, and gas.The popular science base adheres to experts, highlights the three -dimensional demonstration, emphasizes human -machine interaction, and allows children to feel the mysteries of nature in a vivid and intuitive form, and appreciate the magic of technology.
In recent years, the state has implemented the National Science Popular Education Base Creation Plan to achieve remarkable results.In 2022, the Chinese Association of Science and Technology has identified a total of 1274 national science education bases.Earlier this year, the Ministry of Natural Resources and the Ministry of Science and Technology jointly announced 50 national natural resource popular science bases.By strengthening the construction of various popular science education bases, the country has gradually constructed a scientific science education pattern with reasonable geographical distribution and distinctive industry characteristics, creating an increasingly strong atmosphere of popular science education.To an irreplaceable role.
Strengthening popular science education for adolescents and enhancing their scientific awareness and scientific literacy are breakthroughs and efforts to effectively enhance national scientific and technological competitiveness.In recent years, my country’s achievements in popular science education are obvious to all, but it is undeniable that shortcomings and weaknesses still exist.Scientific and technological personnel have not enough popular science stage, insufficient participation in social forces, and the reform of scientific curriculum teaching in schools. The existence of these problems restricts the improvement of the scientific literacy of young people.To comprehensively systematically solve these problems, it is also necessary to launch social forces extensively, use science popularization education resources, and build a big science popularization development pattern.
Create more conditions and encourage scientific and technological personnel to take the stage of popularization.There are tens of millions of professional and technical personnel in my country. They contribute wisdom to scientific and technological innovation and industry development in their respective professional fields.If they can go to schools, communities, and fields, and show their style on the popular science stage as much as possible, not only can they achieve their own social value, but also extend popular science education to a wider social field.In this regard, teachers and students of the Chinese Academy of Sciences have made an example.In 2018, the school implemented a special science science science science action in the “Spring equinox project”, and launched the form of teachers and students to adopt the form of popular science reports, scientific and technological counseling, and public welfare support to improve the scientific literacy of young people.During the National Popular Science Day in 2023, more than a hundred students walked into 28 schools in Beijing, Beijing Science Center and other units, and carried out 205 science reports, and benefited more than 7,600 students.
Pay attention to policy -driven, and absorb social forces to invest in science popularization.The development of science popularization mainly relies on the policy support and capital investment of the party and the government, but it is also inseparable from the extensive participation of social forces.In 2022, the China Affairs Office issued the “Opinions on Further Strengthening the Popularization of Science and Technology in the New Era”, which clearly clearly cultivates and expands the popular science industry and promotes the integration and development of popular science and culture, tourism, and sports.Promote the market -oriented reform of science popularization, introduce competition mechanisms, encourage the establishment of popular science companies, and increase the supply of high -quality popular science products and services.In this regard, it is necessary to further formulate policies and measures to encourage social forces to establish science popularization careers, and encourage social funds to invest in science popularization through the establishment of popular science venues, setting up science popularization funds, and popular science activities.
Deepen the reform of teaching and guide and cultivate students’ scientific hobbies.Young people are imaginative, curious about the outside world, and are very eager to explore the future and understand the world through personal experience.The school, as the main position of teaching and educating people, in addition to impart book knowledge to students, also deepen teaching reform, develop interdisciplinary scientific courses, open popular science demonstration experiments, encourage students to participate in scientific and technological project practice, cultivate their practical ability and teamThe spirit of cooperation; can stimulate students’ awareness of competitiveness and innovation potential by organizing scientific and technological innovation competitions such as modeling model competitions and robotics competitions.
Young people are a critical period for cultivating interests and establishing dreams.We must continue to strengthen the construction of various popular science education bases, use popular science education resources, pass high -quality popular science education, convey scientific knowledge, stimulate young people’s scientific spirit and scientific thinking, and grow in children’s hearts to love science, advocate science, and determine science.The seeds, to cultivate more innovative talents.
