Education must help prepare students for life in an increasingly scientific and technological world, consequently, it is important that they not only become aware of the value of scientific knowledge but also that they experience the excitement and enjoyment of learning science. The fundamental scientific principles and methods employed in the learning experience aid students in understanding science and offer them the educational means necessary to build a framework for learning. Students should be instructed in the various areas of science in cooperation with other disciplines to provide an awareness of the relationship of science to the rest of the world. Science is more than an academic discipline, it is a method to evaluate and process information and thus make decisions about life styles and careers. Students should be exposed to the concepts, skills, facts and processes of science so that they will have the intellectual tools they need to lead productive lives and shape their futures.
