Why study science? Is it hard?

There are many reasons to study science.

  • People usually earn way more 💰 if they have acquired skills and understanding in science, not just some credentials on a piece of paper.
  • We are all living things who interact with chemicals and are affected by forces and energy around us. Understanding science will keep us safe.
  • When we study science, we develop a healthy habit of being curious, and update our understanding of nature based on latest discovery.
