The problems related to science education in a small "Welfare State" such as Denmark are of a very different character and of a very different scope than those faced by many developing countries. In this paper I will try to describe the current situation for science education in Denmark based on my reading of different articles in educational magazines and material presented to the Danish parliament by the Danish Ministry of Education. Science education in Denmark suffers not from the lack of funding, but from the lack of students seeking technical and scientific studies.
