Why Science is important in our lives?

February 28th is our National Science day! This day, in the year 1928, Indian physicist Sir Chandrasekhara Venkata Raman announced to the world his famous discovery -  Raman effectFor his discovery, Raman was awarded the Nobel Prize in Physics in 1930. Some of us may be vaguely aware of the fact. To others this may come as a revelation. To others, possibly who keep track of their children’s day-to-day school activities; they might have become aware of the fact, if their child’s school would be organizing a token quiz or exhibition celebrating this day.

But we rarely talk about science - we talks loads about spirituality, we love talking about politics; we like dissecting the arts and the media, but rarely does most discussions steer towards the sciences. Most Indian newspapers rarely have any dedicated science section, dedicated science magazines (that are not government funded) seem like a remote dream.  
Science surrounds us. It is everywhere in our daily lives - all day, every day!

The importance of science in our daily lives may not be obvious, yet we make science-based choices every day. Science is involved when we choose what to eat, or choose products with the least impact on the environment or make informed decisions about our health-care.

Science helps answer all those tough questions kids ask, like ‘Why is the sky blue?' and 'Where do stars come from?

Why Science For Kids?
1. Science education teaches children more than just the basics of geology, biology, physics and chemistry. Science teaches children to make observations, collect information and to use logical  thinking to draw a conclusion. These skills are important for every part of our lives.

2. Children are naturally curious. Science education fuels that curiosity and provides children with valuable ideas, skills, and potential future career choices.

3. Science education gives children the opportunity to experiment and work in teams. These activities enhance communication, research, reporting, and collaboration skills.

4. Children who have a basic understanding of science are more receptive to new technologies and ideas in the future that can stimulate research, development and businesses.

Let's face it, technology is taking the world by storm, and it is firmly grounded in science. Kids need more opportunities to learn and love science. Through our Avishkaar Boxes, we intend to change this and give kids a real chance to learn science and Technology before they start to think that it's too hard.      

So this week we at Avishkaar Box, intend to Celebrate Science - to recognize the contribution of science in our lives and for making it easy and adventurous. 

And we would love you to join us! It is an opportunity to together enjoy and explore the magic of Science this week through interesting Science facts, quiz, activities and much more! Enjoy the week and watch out for this space!
