Abstract

This study aims to measure students’ scientific literacy in their ability to solve environmental problems based on the COVID-19 issue. The main problem in this research is “How to improve students’ scientific literacy in their ability to solve environmental problems based on the COVID 19 issue?” Based on the formulation of the main problem, several research questions can be formulated, including: (a) What is the understanding of postgraduate science education’s students on the COVID 19 issue?, (b) What is the student’s ability to solve environmental problems related to the COVID-19 issue? This study uses a mail survey technique considering that until this research was carried out it was still in a social distancing situation, so it was not possible to meet with respondents directly. Based on the results of the study, it can be concluded that students’ scientific literacy related to environmental issues based on COVID-19 can be categorized as good because students can provide solutions to the problems asked.
