We can often assume that the importance of science to our lives and in driving societal developmental is obvious to most people. However, there is a high level of cultural and religious misconception about science in Africa. In Nigeria, Africa's most populous nation, science literacy is extremely low, partly due to the near absence of science communication by scientists, which itself could be partly linked to low government support for science. In schools, many science teachers lack equipment for science teaching and do not employ alternative innovative teaching approaches.
