We All Need Science

I believe anyone can learn science.  Science doesn’t have to be hard or cause anxiety.  Science explains the world around us.  Science tells us how things work, and why they do so.  Science is an explanation for the things we observe.  I think that knowing science makes life more interesting and enjoyable!
