Japan Turns to Science for All Americans to Increase Public Interest in Science

Just three months after its release, the Japanese translation of Science For All Americans already has been downloaded at least 3000 times from the Web site of AAAS's Project 2061, demonstrating how the education concepts in the book have global applications.Written by scientists, engineers, mathematicians, educators, historians and other experts, Science for All Americans defined what every high school graduate should know and be able to do in science, mathematics, and technology in order to understand and thrive in the modern world. It also recommended steps the nation's education system could take to make that goal a reality. First published in 1989, the seminal work has 200,000 copies in print, is free online and has been translated into Spanish and Chinese in addition to the recent Japanese translation.
