2011 International Year for Chemistry

And I just learned about it too. Thanks to our office newsletter which I seldom read.

I have this blog to share my love for Science particularly on Chemistry. And to share that it is also simple, interesting and fun. I can’t get enough of the vast knowledge Science has to offer. With that I am always on the look-out for new things to learn. We must instill that passion to our kids and youngsters.

I’ll share some items on the American Chemistry Society (ACS) booklet called “Celebrating Chemistry”.

Science: Tree of Knowledge

When we say branches, the first thing in our mind is a tree. From one trunk sprouts branches, twigs then leaves.

So when we say Science it is one big tree of knowledge with the different fields as its branches.

Here I listed the major branches or divisions of Science as Pure and Applied Sciences, further comes other smaller branches or twigs like Physical Science, Life Science, etc. Down comes the leaves with Physics, Chemistry, Botany and the like.

Pure Sciences

1. Physical Science

2. Life Science

3. Earth Science

Applied Sciences

1. Mathematical Science

2. Social Sciences
-Political Science

3. Engineering
-Chemical Engineering
-Mechanical Engineering
-Electrical Engineering

I'll discuss those different Sciences (or maybe discussed some already) along the way.
