We use science in our
daily lives. There is Pure Science that helps us understand the
universe and it’s inhabitants. Applied Science uses scientific
facts to help us make things that are useful to us.
Science helps people and
the world grow and change with scientific discoveries.
The cave people discovered
a way to make fire, to make tools to hunt, and man just kept right on
going and creating all kinds of things to survive and become what we are
today. We have more time for recreation and community activities. We don’t
hunt our food anymore to eat.
progress has made life easier and nicer in our homes.
A housewife years ago had to spend almost all day washing and sewing
clothes, cooking and preserving food, cleaning the house and taking care
of the fire in the fireplace. Thanks to science it has given us electric
energy to run washing machines, sewing machines, refrigerators, heating
and air conditioning to keep our houses comfortable. Electric lights
have replaced candles, oil lamps and gas flames that were used in the
old day to light our houses. Frozen foods and automatic stoves help us
make our foods easier and faster. Detergents have made cleaning and
washing easier too. Being a housewife today is easier than it was 100
In agriculture it
has helped farmers produce more food and livestock. The invention of
tractors replaced farm horses and it des the work of 50 horses.
science has moved from the home and small shops to big factories, which
has given us mass production and automation. Any new development in
science that gives us new products, help us create millions of jobs.
science has given people longer, healthier lives. Scientists developed
vaccines to prevent diseases and medicines to cure the sick.
In the community
scientists look into almost every daily activity in order to improve the
way we live. They study family life, what we like, how we live, what we
are in need of.
In War, science has
developed many weapons to help us defend ourselves. The rocket that
sends a guided missile can also launch a satellite in outer space to
help us learn more about the universe.
Scientific discoveries can
either help us, or hurt us. It is up to the people of the world to
choose how to use them.
