(ThySistas.com) Science is a framework that we use to understand how the word works. It helps us discover more about history, learn about the stars and planets, and develop treatments for diseases. While there are many women in the field of medicine, other STEM fields (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) skew toward the male of the species. Girls have been encouraged to take more of an interest in science recently, and there are some great ways you can develop your own interest too.
Watch Some Scientific Documentaries
If you want to get interested in science, watching some TV is one of the best things you can do. It’s often easier to understand things when they can be explained visually. Plus, documentaries usually use language that’s easy for anyone to understand.
Read About Science
If you want to go a bit more in-depth, you could read some things too. From books to blogs, there are many resources to learn from. Don’t worry – you don’t need to be an expert. Many authors write popular science writings that anyone can read.
Take a Course in One of the Sciences
For more formal education, you could seek out a science course – anything from a quick online course to a degree. You might have learned some science at school, but there’s always more to learn.
Learn About the Good Science Can Do
