Are you more science-savvy than the average American?

Here's a quick and fun 12 question science quiz. Click on the "source" link above and see how you stack up against the American public according to a study released by the Pew Research Center.

Once completed you can also view the full report which states amongst other interesting findings that "the public has a far less positive view of the global standing of U.S. science than do scientists themselves."

Oh yeah and as it turns out I am more science savvy than the average American. Good thing too since I happen to work for the "oldest and largest single life science membership organization in the world." :)

  1. 12 out of 12, which apparently 10% of the American public also got correct.
  2. Yeah, I also got 12/12, guess all this education is paying off, haha!
  3. I wonder if anyone who did not get a 12 out of 12 would mention that they did. Especially on a site like this.
