A very good morning to one and all present here. Today, I will be giving a short speech on the topic of ‘Science’.
Google defines the term ‘science’ to be “the systematic study of the structure and behaviour of the physical and natural world through observation, experimentation, and the testing of theories against the evidence obtained.”
Again, Wikipedia similarly defines the term as follows: “Science is a systematic endeavour that builds and organizes knowledge in the form of testable explanations and predictions about the universe. Systematic reasoning is tens of thousands of years old.”
Simply put, “science is the pursuit and application of knowledge and understanding of the natural and social world following a systematic methodology based on evidence.” Thus evidential proof as a result of experimentations is of importance here. This is precisely why science has become very important, especially in today’s times.
Science, especially scientific findings, is a game changer in numerous fields such as medicine, technology, and even war. Without science, a lot of diseases would still be life-threatening and many of the technological advancements we have today would be nonexistent. This, I’m sure, would put us back to the vulnerable human beings we had once been.
Scientific advancements are crucial for the development of any country. Japan is the best example. Being a global leader in robotics, natural sciences, aerospace explorations, and biomedical research areas, Japan is now one of the most advanced countries in the world.
Similarly, in the medical field, science is crucial. We have to be thankful for both the medicines already available and the ones now being researched to cure various diseases only because of science, without which we would have to suffer.
A nation’s defence also is enhanced by scientific military advantages wherein it can secure its borders.
Science is our future.
