Presented By Dr. Vaisakhan Thampi D.S
The purpose of this session is to give an insight on the importance of science as a working knowledge. It is common, especially in India, that while delving into various scientific disciplines, students tend to lose the big picture. Science often gets misinterpret as technology. You love something when you find it interesting. But even while being interested in technology, why do many students find science difficult to learn? It is basically due to misconceptions regarding what science is. To love science, that needs to be rectified.
What makes both Physics and Botany a science, while these subjects have not much in common? What makes science science after all? How do scientists think? What is the difference between facts and science? When does science become part of your thinking? What qualifies something to be called 'scientific'? These are some of the questions to be addressed.
