The first scientists were simply men and women who observed phenomena in nature, and then sought ways to reproduce them. They did this so that they could show others the importance of an event, to track the changes in seasons and in forms of life, and to better survive in their environments. In time, they brought us better models of education and training. We learned more about experimentation, about the larger fields of science, and of their importance in civilization and survival.
There's no replacement for a solid education when it comes to science. The more that we learn about our surroundings, the better we understand both them, and our selves. Every day, there are modern men and women seeking to make great advances in their respective fields of medicine, astronomy, chemistry, physics, and a host of other disciplines that all have direct, tangible effects on our growth as a world of diverse people.
The SLN strives to provide visitors with a vast resource of information dedicated to the understanding and advancement of science in its many varied forms. With this resource, we encourage visitors to learn more about both science in theory, and science in action. The practical applications of scientific endeavors are just as important as the complex formulas and research that are behind them.
When it comes to education, there's an even greater need for clear sources, credible scientific articles, and further direction on where you can go to learn more, do more, and even become a source of innovation yourself.
Educators from across the United States, and the world at large, have come together online to provide a wealth of information that can be accessed online for free. Regardless of economy, country of origin, or level of education, there are scientific learning tools, databases, and search engines that can open the door to a brighter future for all.
Browse these resources today, and provide feedback of your own in the form of suggested links, interesting articles, or just contact with the site staff. We would love to hear from science educators that are interested in helping us to improve the site's content for their needs.
