Science Education Day 2024 History, Significance, Message, Wish, Quotes and Status

The world, which was a place of immense wonder and mystery since the beginning of creation, has been brought into the hands of people through the practice of science. In the progress of science, nothing is impossible for people. At one point in life in ancient times, people learned to use tree branches and stones as weapons to invent fire by rubbing rocks against rocks and hunting animals. And since then, the triumph of science began.

Since then, using science, people are constantly focusing on addiction to discoveries. From the primitive age to the present age, the development of human civilization is based on science. As a result of the discovery of gravity and gravitational force by the scientist Sir Isaac Newton, people have undertaken many amazing activities including walking to the moon. On the eve of today’s globalization, the countries of the developed world consider science as the driving force and constantly research and discover new things for human welfare.

Humans have conquered the moon and are constantly striving to reach Mars through the acquisition of scientific knowledge. Japan, South Korea, Malaysia, and Singapore have been able to place themselves in a respectable seat in world leadership by emphasizing science education. Therefore, Science Education Day is celebrated on March 14 every year to highlight the need for and importance of science education.

History of Science Education Day

In 1892, the United States Committee on Science Education was formed and recognized. There was a lack of standardization in science education before the formation of this Science Education Committee in the United States. After the Industrial Revolution in the 19th century, people began to realize the development of science and technology and became more interested in science and technology.

Then in Florida in 1892 the National Education Association established a committee of 10 on secondary school studies. The committee was established following a conference of 30 leading local secondary and college educators in Florida. Then the Committee of Tens published a report in 1894 after various discussions and workshops. There they released a report highlighting the importance of secondary education and the need for science education.

Between the 1990s and the end of World War II, school administrators in the United States realized the importance of science education. Science education is organized to improve secondary education and realize the need for science. The National Science Foundation was established in 1950 to support and promote the initiation of basic scientific research and education.

This science foundation led to radical changes in science education curriculum and instruction that remain to this day. By teaching Physics, Chemistry, and Biology, students become interested in science. And through scientific research, science has gradually developed into a field that has now advanced our civilization.

Significance of Science Education Day

Through science, James Watt invented the steam engine and George Stevens the railway. John L. Baird invented the television and Charles Babbage invented the computer. With the benefits of electricity, nuclear energy, space research, electronic equipment, etc., people today are concentrating on expanding their influence in space beyond the boundaries of the Earth. Scientists have conquered the oceans by building various vessels using Archimedes’ formula.

Due to the tireless efforts of scientists like Copernicus, Galileo, Newton, Einstein, Michael Faraday, Thomas Alva Edison, and Alberini, people got the opportunity to enter the modern age. As a result of the wonderful, unimaginable, and limitless progress of science, our social life has become dynamic.  All the wonderful inventions of science have brought endless happiness and comfort to people’s daily life. Science education has allowed us to know ourselves and our security.

In this age of science and technology, it is completely impossible to achieve self-reliance without a science education.  Due to the amazing innovations of science and technology, limitless progress is being made today in global communication, education, medicine, agriculture, industry, trade expansion, daily living, and entertainment. Breakthrough and amazing progress in all walks of life, including information and communication technology and space travel, is the result of science education.

So, we want science education to improve the quality of life and make the way of life beautiful. Science education puts an end to the narrowness of the human mind and the search for truth. The man knew that the sun rose in the east and set in the west and that the planet earth stood still.  But the scientist Copernicus discovered that the sun is standing still and the numerous planets of the solar system, including the earth, are constantly rotating around it, maintaining their distance.

So only the practice of science can remove human ignorance. This is how people become rational and judgmental. Science Education Day is observed every year to make people realize the need of science education. By observing Science Education Day with deep significance, we can make the young generation more interested in science education.
