Abstract

This paper reports on the level of scientific culture among Malaysian and Japanese students. Japanese students were used as comparison because Malaysia looks at to Japan as a model for science and technology development. The findings suggest that the level of scientific culture of Malaysian students is significantly higher than that of Japanese students. One possible explanation for this is that Japan which adopted S&T by primarily focusing on its practical use they have failed to acquire the scientific spirit.
