Science

Science is important because it encompasses all things in the world.  It explains the world around us from microscopic to macroscopic.  It has helped and continues to help explain the Big Questions of the Universe.

Physics has led to energy resource development, engineering break through, the ability for humans to traverse through space and has allowed us to understand the full physical world around us.  It also offers the chance for further knowledge and exploration.  It has determined global issues – global warming, earthquakes, volcanic activity and has found solutions to problems and continues to develop further advances.

Chemistry has led to major understanding not only of materials, their properties and the development of essential compounds but also of the structure of DNA and linking with Biology the human genome where we are now able to determine health issues before they occur and prevent them, genetically engineer crops. The interactions between different substances to provide food and drink, fertilisers to grow plants, as well as a whole range of other essentials to human life.

Biology is important because it is about living organisms; organisms that make up our bodies, our world and everything in it. If we don’t understand the complexities of this universe and the organisms that we within it, then how can we justify our existence and protect our world and the organisms within it?  Through biological research lives have been saved and supported in medical research across the globe.  Medical experts are able to travel across the globe to help the most vulnerable people (thanks to understanding of forces and engineering for transport).

It is fundamental to our understanding of the world, gives us a purpose of life and makes us all-round better inhabitants of our wonderful universe. Science is everything basically.
