Science is defined as knowledge attained through study or practice. It’s a way to study the world around us and gain a deeper understanding of how things work. It allows us to understand the basic laws and principles of our world and how they work together to create life now and in the future.

As part of high school study program, you’ll be required to take a few years of science ranging anywhere from general science studies and biology to more advanced classes such as chemistry and physics.

To help with your coursework, we’ve found quite a few educational science resources. Use these to help in an area you’re having trouble with, or just to gain a deeper knowledge of your subject matter.
