Student Dont Get Science

Researchers from Michigan State University say most college students in the United States don't understand scientific basics. The report comes from the January issue of Bio-Science. It looked at more than 500 students from 13 US colleges and tested their knowledge on courses ranging from biology to ecology.
Most students in the study didn't know the basics of weight loss, climate change or how plants gather energy. The researchers say high school and college level instructors need to do a better job teaching science fundamentals.
