Abstract: Introductory astronomy is most often a “terminal” science and is therefore a “last chance” to help students understand what science is and why it matters, with the hope they will go on to support and value science as citizens and members of the voting public. After reviewing existing surveys, I created the Science Attitude Survey (SAS) as a short pre/post survey to measure the effect of taking an introductory astronomy class on student attitudes towards science, scientists, and funding science.
