Science Education Day
Science Education Day is celebrated on March 14th of every year. Science is all around us, and we could notice it in every walk of life. Most of us are introduced to the science subject in our school classrooms. It might be your science teacher who has inspired you and laid the foundation of your love for the science and its various fields. For few others, the medium of information varies, for instance, they would have gathered knowledge of science from the internet and magazines. What so ever the medium of science education be, its time to thank all those who have shared the science contents and made you find and learn about them. Science Education Day gives you an opportunity to celebrate and thank all those people around the world who have actively shared their views and information about science from kids to adults.
“Science is a beautiful gift to humanity; we should not distort it.” – A. P. J. Abdul Kalam
History of Science Education Day
There isn’t any mention of the history, origin, and the founder of the Science Education Day. However, the creator of the Day has come up with such an idea as a way to celebrate and honour all those people who are sharing the contents of science with others. Celebrate the Science Education Day as a way to say a thank you to all those who have encouraged and assisted in turning that curiosity about science into a passion. Thank all those science teachers in the classroom, homeschool, docents, along with the volunteers and the members of the education staff at other places like science & nature centres, aquariums, planetariums, and more. The science education learners may be anyone including children, students from school & college, and adults. The work in science content, scientific method, scientific science, and some teaching pedagogy are the field of science education.
