You’re the father of a two children?

Yeah, one aged now eight and twelve. Yeah.
Are they interested in science?
Neil deGrasse Tyson:
I don’t press it on them. I don’t – I’d tell you this – by the time I’m done with them. They’re going to be scientifically literate whether or not they want to become a scientist, in fact if you ask them today – I think that my daughter wants to be a novelist and that’s very much not a scientist. It’s something else completely. But I can tell you this. She’s scientifically literate and the science literacy is coming from the – how I immerse them in their environment at home. When we travel what surrounds them that forces them to think about how the world works and I’m actually doing a study on them about the causes and effects of these of the environment versus how they think.
People think science literacy is being able to recite facts. You know, how long does it take the moon to go around the earth? How does your microwave oven work?
And it’s not that, that it’s a part of it but it’s not the main part of it, the main part is how do you look at the world, what lens, what is the world look like through your lens.
If you’re scientifically literate the world looks very different to you. It’s not just a lot of mysterious things happening, there’s a lot we understand out there and that understanding empowers you to first not be taken advantage of by others who do understand it.
And second, it’s they’re issues that confront society that have science as their foundation. If you’re not scientifically literate you are – it’s in a way you are disenfranchising yourself from the democratic process and you don’t even know it.
So whatever my kids become. I want it to be scientifically literate and that’s my goal with them.
