Individuals in the sciences contribute to our shared knowledge of the natural world by exploring it, gathering evidence, and organizing and presenting their findings. Common branches of science include biology, chemistry, psychology, and physics. Together these sciences have helped us understand how the world works and what we can do... to develop within it.
Most of us first learn about science in school, when we are exposed to simple experiments that demonstrate basic principles. Although the professional world of scientific work is a little more sophisticated, the same kinds of methods are used to turn hypotheses into working theories that can be confirmed by repeated observation and measurement.
People who take to science are meticulous, logical, and have excellent quantitative skills, including an aptitude for math. Yet there is also a creative side to science, as innovation depends on original approaches to old issues. A scientist may have to discard dozens of hypotheses before stumbling across a new finding, but the joy of discovery is what drives these professionals to persevere.
Students studying everything from astronomy to zoology will be immersed in research, experimentation, and will be expected to keep up with the latest work in the field. An academic background in the sciences will prepare students for a career in a laboratory, a university, or in any number of public and private sector jobs where innovation is the name of the game.
