Science is crucial to intellectual and economic development; historically, it is one of the cornerstones of civilization. Hence, we need to guarantee an appropriate science education and awareness on all levels. Physics is the most basic science, upon which all applied sciences are based. Physicists can help in solving critical global challenges. We need to make the case that science is important and relevant to people’s lives.
The importance of science is not just technological breakthroughs, but more importantly is that it encourages critical thinking, which is essential for our modern society to prosper.
It is very important to communicate the value of scientific research in order for nonscientists to appreciate the value of science and research.
The general public can often have some apprehension about science. It is the duty of scientists to change this perception.
