Science is an instrument of human endeavor

Science is the concerted human effort to understand the history of the natural world and how the natural world works, with observable physical evidence. It is done through observation of natural phenomena, and/or through experimentation that tries to simulate natural processes under controlled conditions.

Science is both procedure and knowledge. Science may sometimes seem like a group of isolated and static facts listed in a textbook, however science can be a process of discovery that permits us to link isolated facts into comprehensive and coherent understandings of the natural world.

Science forms the underlying understanding that is critical in a wide range of professions. There is a pathway to many jobs through further scientific study both inside and outside of a lab. Only through broad scientific study can we further our understanding of our environment and ourselves and develop new and exciting technologies.

Science and Medicine

Science and medicine are inseparable and many ways the medicine is application of scientific research into the treatment and diagnosis of disease and injury. Advances in understanding human anatomy, physiology and neurology go hand-in-hand with the development of new drugs and procedures for the treatment of people in medical institutions. Medical practitioners use allied scientific professionals every-day including pharmacologist, toxicologists and microbiologists to assist in testing and diagnosis.

Science and Technology

Many technological advances have a basis in scientific discovery and development. Science professionals are also directly involved in technology areas from the development of new materials, to testing and studying human behavior to improve technological interaction. One recent technological innovation that has ongoing scientific collaboration is 3D Printers and 3D printing materials. 3D printing is the layering of material to form a solid object based on a set of software instructions. Developing suitable materials including new plastic and organic formulation that produce the best result is an ongoing collaboration between science and technology.

Science and Business

Product development is a key area for science professionals in commercial enterprise. This can be from new drugs and materials to better manufacturing processes, packaging, design and even marketing. More and more the role of scientific testing of processes, design and development are sought to make production, distribution and sales more effective and efficient for new and existing product development.
