"Men love to wonder, and that is the seed of science."
Science is the study of the nature and behaviour of natural things and the knowledge that we obtain about them. The word 'SCIENCE' originally came from the Latin word "Scientia" which meant knowledge, a knowing, expertness, or experience.
Science education gives students the opportunity to gain a better knowledge of how and why things function. Science can teach children about the world that surrounds them. We are surrounded by technology and the products of science every day. Teaching the scientific method to students is teaching them how to think, learn, solve problems and make informed decisions. These skills are integral to every aspect of a student's education and life, from school to career. Science education cultivates students' curiosity about the world and enhances scientific thinking. Science education aims to increase people's understanding of science and the construction of knowledge as well as to promote scientific literacy and responsible citizenship.
