The Importance of Science in our Daily Life

Can you imagine your life without science? Science has become a symbol of modernity and evolution. Human rely heavily on science and create breakthroughs frequently, to make our life easier. The food we eat, the way we commute, the clothes we wear, the way we find new ways of recreation- everything has a touch of applied science to it.  Almost everything that makes our daily life easy is a wonder of modern science. Science has given us too many gifts to be counted. We find it impossible to imagine a life without modern science because modern science is what runs our daily life.

The Importance of Science

Here are a few things which point out how important science is in our everyday life:

Mass production has been made possible because of science:

Can you imagine writing on pieces of cloth and then running out of material or ink to write?,the times have changed considerably, and we do not follow our ancestors’ ways anymore. Science has helped in the mass production of daily-use items which help get through the day without much hassle. It has evolved to satisfy our needs efficiently.

Science has overcome the barriers posed by time and distance:

Science has helped us travel from one place to another with substantial speed. Our forefathers would not have dreamt of achieving this feat during their time. With the invention of modern modes of transport, moving from one place to another is so much easier. The internet has come into our lives with a bang and created so many possibilities of instant communication. Science has given humanity a boon in the form of the World Wide Web. Eliminating the disadvantages of a telegram, the internet allows us to send emails and instant messages, which makes communication faster for human beings in this fast pacing world.

Science has the power to save human lives:

The field of medicine has benefitted quite a lot due to science. From a minor headache to cancer, scientists have come up with medicinal drugs that can cure illness and save lives. Science has reached a stage where it is increasing human life expectancy. Human heart-transplantation is a significant achievement in the field of surgery. In fact, transplantation of human organs is entirely possible now to save the lives of human beings.

Science enables protection:

Mother Nature is often unpredictable. Changing weather often poses challenges to human beings in their daily life. Electronic fans and air-conditioners provide comfort during summer days. Room heaters provide warmth and comfort during the winter season. Atmosphere moderators help in improving the temperature during the rainy season. Human beings build their homes in such a way that it sustains even the harshest weather. New construction strategies help human beings to create modern houses which are capable of protecting them from any weather or climate. Science has indeed defied Mother Nature. Whether this has a positive impact or not, is debatable.

Science versus Technology

Science and technology are like two sides of a coin. One cannot exist without the other. While Science is the branch of knowledge where we get to know about things and technology is the practical application of science. Science and Technology have the same aim, that is, to improve the standard of living of humankind. The technology uses various knowledge and breakthroughs of science to create new products which help human beings function. The words science and technology are often used as synonyms as they closely related and dependent on each other.

Science versus Technology

Science provides us answers to various questions:

Science is about acquiring knowledge and finding answers to questions. It aims to question aspects such as- Why are trees green.  Why does it snow? How are directions like North and South recognized? So on and so forth. When knowledge is used practically to meet human needs and solve problems, technology is born. Science is the process of getting to know about new things while technology uses the laws of science to create new things which benefit humankind. Science and technology are fast evolving to meet the standards of modernity.

Technologies – The end product of scientific discoveries:

Science may be defined as the systematic method of obtaining knowledge while technology may be defined as a combination of process, technique and skill which aims to complete scientific investigation. Technology is often the result or end product of scientific discoveries and inventions. Research is a common phenomenon between science and technology. Research is regularly conducted to expand scientific knowledge and to get to know new things. It is also applied to create new technology using the principles of science.

Container of knowledge:

Science is a container of knowledge which holds the answers to all questions if it is dealt with in a right manner. The knowledge is based on evidence and facts, rather than personal choices and opinions. It is of objective and not subjective. The laws and declarations of science produced by science cannot be challenged as they are well observed and tested. In science, a hypothesis is generated and proven, research and experiments are conducted, and conclusions are drawn. The sole aim of science is to find answers to questions. We often question the purpose of our existence. Where did we come from and where are we going? These are the two universal questions that science seeks to answer perfectly. But, science may not always be accurate. It has multiple theories to one subject.

Some things are around us which are generated with the help of technology. Technology is the brainchild of science. It is a practical application of science. Science is not complete without technology as technology gives purpose to science. Technology is used to extend abilities and simplify work. It also aims to provide solutions to scientific problems. There’s a constant debate regarding the fact whether technology is a boon or bane. If technology is used in the right way, it can create wonders and help human beings to any extent. But technology does have its repercussions.



Thank you both again, the workshop was great and the kids learned so much !!
