Abstract

<p>One of the problems of science communication in Japan is that it has not spread sufficiently among citizens. In order to disseminate science communication to the general public, the indifferent public is a key demographic. Therefore, the authors proposed design principles for a workshop aimed at the indifferent public, in which participants become scientific re-communicators, so that science and technology culture can infiltrate into the general public. Specifically, an everyday situation was tailored to be a scientific exploration space by setting familiar 'daily life' topics for participants. The level of skills as a re-communicator were then defined in order to evaluate the activities of the re-communicators. The results indicate that the participants acquired the skills required of a re-communicator and carried out communication activities. Feedback was obtained from the participants on whether they felt that scientific literacy was relevant to them and if they came to feel encouraged to re-communicate with their community. It was found that, through the workshop, they had more incentives to participate in the science and technology culture and to utilize scientific literacy in their daily lives and communities.</p>
