How Science Impacts Our Daily Life – 1

In today’s world, we are surrounded by science and technology. It won’t be wrong if I say, science is deeply rooted in whatever we do in our daily lives. Science is so much into our lives that we can’t ignore science in any way.

Science is a gift in our lives that has filled our lives with knowledge, comfort and excitement. it has transformed our lives for the betterment of human lives.

Science is everywhere and in everything we do. We start our day by brushing our teeth. Toothpaste and the brush are scientific products. We use soaps to bathe and detergents to wash our clothes. Shampoos, conditioners, oil, etc all are scientific products. All the makeup products, household products, kitchen appliances, home appliances, vehicles, gas, electricity, computers, internet, are due to our scientific knowledge. Medical and healthcare advantages are due to science.

Can we live for a single day without science? Can we even imagine our lives without science? I think, the answer is no. Let’s talk about science and it’s impact on our lives one by one.

Science and Agriculture

Science is a vast term and agriculture is a part of it. Agriculture not only involves plants but also animals. With the advancement in the agronomist research (research in agricultural field) and development the agricultural productivity has increased, infection rate has decreased, food production has increased and sustainability has also increased.

Modern agriculture is not only related to food production but it is also concerned with processing and preservation of food for humans and animals. Today agriculture is also related with oil production,honey production, timber, leathers, fibers, flowers, industrial chemicals, etc. Agriculture with the help of science and technology has broadened its field and efficiency.

Our increasing in the knowledge of other fields of science such as chemistry, biotechnology, and plant science has benefitted agricultural. Combination of agrnonomical scientific tools with agricultural practices has changed the field of agriculture.

Science and Industrial Revolution

Science has a major contribution in industrial revolution and are closely connected to each other. Inventions in science indirectly led to industrial revolution. Machines, tools, motors, engines, electricity, etc played major role in industrial revolution. The inventors of many machines and tools were not really scientists. The major breakthrough in industrial revolution was the invention of steam engine.

Steam Engine

The power of science and technology is behind the success of globalization of industrial revolution. The production of electricity, advancement in vehicles, steam boats for transportation, ability to communicate with each other from long distances led to industrial revolution.

Science and Education

Use of science and technology has increased in schools and colleges for meaningful and joyful learning. Science and technology has changed the conventional classroom teaching and learning experience.

Students now enjoy learning with videos, interactive lessons and elearning. Use of internet and ebooks give wide collection of books, journals and research papers easily reachable. Online tutoring and online courses have also made learning easily accessible to everyone.

There are other fields also where science impacts are daily lives. Those fields will be discussed in another blogpost. I hope this post will be informative. Science and technology has improved our lives in good sense.
