If we want a nation where our future leaders, neighbors, and workers can understand and solve some of the complex challenges of today and tomorrow, it is very important that our nation’s youth are prepared to bring knowledge and skills to solve problems and make sense of information, and know how to gather and evaluate evidence to make decisions. These all are the kinds of skills that students can develop in science. Science education is the education which gives students the opportunity to gain a better knowledge of how and why things function. In our lives we use scientific thought, method and inquiry to come to our decisions.
After 10+2, B. Sc. or Bachelor of Science is one of the best career options which provides basic knowledge of the major Science subjects to the students.
