"Science is, at its best, a creative pursuit driven by a search for meaning and better understanding of the world around us"
(The Awa book of Science; R.Priestley.Ed.)
As we face the excitement of new scientific discoveries and the challenges these pose, it is necessary that we equip ourselves with a good understanding of scientific ideas. A really good knowledge base will allow us to make decisions free of superstion and misinformation as the 21st century proceeds.
Science influences our lives more and more each day.
