In his presentation, Sunarno Basuki talked about the importance of science education in building future generations of innovators. He outlined the latest data on the condition of Indonesia’s science literacy while emphasizing how important science education is carried out effectively and interestingly. The Professor of Physical Education at FKIP ULM also emphasized that if science learning is not interesting for Indonesian students, there will be few students who are interested so that few competitive innovations are born from the nation. Whereas innovation is an important part of the entrepreneurial world. “A successful entrepreneur is not only an innovative product, but also an imaginative mindset. These characters can all be developed in science learning,” he said. (admin)
