Science is a subject that always garners enthusiasm at the early childhood and elementary levels. However, somewhere around middle school, that love for science drops off, especially in female students. By fostering scientific literacy beginning in pre-kindergarten, students are more likely to hold onto their passion for science.

Injecting science literacy resources into existing science programs, or using them at home, helps foster a lifetime of scientific knowledge that keeps on giving as students grow into scientifically literate adults who never stop learning.
