Science is a unique and difficult subject to manage well. There are a number of critical problems faced by science teachers. Passion and training in the subject are key to overcoming these difficulties.
There are many exciting jobs which require science qualifications. Many science jobs are even in such hot demand that they are projected to grow significantly in the next few years.
Scientific discovery is necessary for our survival. Climate change is fueling pandemics, species and habitat loss, weather catastrophes and more. We need to boost our science programs in the younger grades to get more kids entering STEM post secondary programs. Our survival depends on it.
Planting trees to save energy is a great conservation strategy. It not only saves you money on your heating and cooling bill but it is also environmentally friendly. You use less fuel to heat and cool your home so you produce less green house gases. You are doing your part to reduce global warming and you boost biodiversity to boot.
