There are various problems concerning the communication of science, one of which, the most important for the development of this work is not to be conceived as a linear activity, ie, where only important to publicize the benefits of science but should also consider the issues that surround the scientific topics. In this way, I believe that not only is important to transmit scientific knowledge but also give rise to different types of knowledge, with this I mean wisdom and traditions, which are immersed in a multicultural society like ours. The problem is that the separation established between indigenous or traditional knowledge and science, because it is implicit an act of valuation of parta and devaluation of the other, is totally asymmetric and generates profound inequalities (Carrillo, 2006: 13). In this sense, the main thesis consist outline a model of science communication in a multicultural society.  
In this regard, in a second part presents the main communication model of science and technology, with the objective of describing the problematic that exist in current models of communication within a multicultural society, as neither of these models meets the needs of the different actors of the company.  
In the last part, are describe the basis on which development the model multicultural communication of science and technology. In the last part describes the basis on which the model multicultural communication of science and technology. In the first instance, I describe what is multiculturalism, how it develops in a liberal democracy and how a republican democracy, what democracy is more feasible to propose a model multicultural communication of science and technology as well as the coexistence of both knowledge scientific and technological knowledge as traditional conflict solving in specific contexts.
