The Popularization of Science is one among the oldest UNESCO programs. The program seeks to increase public understanding of science. During the last 60 years three tools have been used to popularize science:
1. UNESCO Prizes in science (Currently UNESCO awards eight different prizes in science.)
2. Science Centers and Museums (UNESCO supports Member States efforts to develop science centers and museums, including - in 2003-2004 - technical assistance on science centre development in East Jerusalem, Morocco and Yemen.)
3. Science exhibition (Several international science exhibitions related to building public awareness of science and technology were organized in 2004 and 2005.)
