What is science education?

Science education is the act of teaching science to students of all ages, from young children in elementary school to high school students, college students, and adults. Traditional science education includes:

  • Physical science. The branch of natural science that studies non-living things. Among the branches of physical science are astronomy, chemistry, and physics.

  • Life science. The branch of natural science that involves the scientific study of life, such as micro-organisms, plants, animals, and humans.

  • Earth science. The field of science that studies the planet Earth, including the biosphere, hydrosphere, atmosphere, and geosphere.

Each science subject requires its own unique set of supplies. Having the necessary science education equipment can promote a better learning environment for students.
