Why Science Matters?

Does Science matter to you? If not, think again! Science has put us on the moon, discovered treatments for diseases and revolutionised how we communicate in the 21st century. It has done a lot for humankind. Science is embedded everywhere in our daily lives - from the clean water that we drink to the autonomous cars we drive. The world we now live in is powered by the understanding and impact of science and technology. Get inspired now!
