Science is the study of the way things work in the universe, both natural and artificial. Scientists use their knowledge to help us understand the world better. Human beings have always spent a lot of time figuring out the world and how it works. Many of the things they have learnt have help people live longer, more productive, and happier lives.
Thanks to the works of thousands of scientist, we can make reliable predictions. Science is very useful in our lives. The way the scientist looked at the world help us better understand ourselves.
If you want to be a scientist, you should note that the most important quality of a good scientist is curiosity. Curiosity makes the scientist ask “Why does that happen?”. It makes the scientist research and test an idea.
Another important quality is that a scientist must be a good observer. Scientist watch the world around them. They try to make sense of the world and so must keep an open mind while they search for the facts. That means they will also have to observe in unusual places.
The scientist must be able to communicate their findings. That is how knowledge builds on knowledge. They must share their findings. And above all they have to be persistent. Observation takes time.
