ABSTRACT

This paper divides scientific literacy into three dimensions: Scientific knowledge, scientific ability and scientific spirit, and then uses the questionnaire survey data to analyze the influence of college students' participation degree of competition, participation motivation of competition, participation atmosphere of competition and condition guarantee of competition on scientific literacy. The study found that college students' participation degree of competition has a significant positive impact on scientific knowledge, scientific ability and scientific spirit; Participation motivation of competition has no significant impact on the scientific literacy of each dimension; Participation atmosphere of competition has a significant positive impact on scientific knowledge and scientific spirit; The condition guarantee of competition has a significant positive impact on scientific knowledge and scientific ability. Finally, this paper puts forward targeted policy recommendations.
