Analysis on Science Popularization Mode in Ethnic Villages: A Case Study on Youshuihe Town in Youyang Tujia and Hmong Autonomous County

Lijuan WANG


During popularization of science in ethnic villages, new science popularization modes unique to minorities should be explored considering the prominent problem that the existing science popularization mode, restricted by such factors as ethnic groups, diverse cultures and territorial environments, has become incapable of adapting to and satisfying local demands for science popularization. Based on a case study on science popularization in Youshuihe Town, Chongqing, a new mode, which gears to the multicultural society, centers upon ethnic villages and villagers’ pursuit for science popularization, integrates various useful resources from the perspectives of personnel, content selection, management mechanism, ethnic culture and natural environment, and aims at improving the scientific quality of ethnic villages and villagers, will be investigated into in this paper.
