Science has opened innumerable avenues for pursuing different vocations. A student of science can study engineering and technology, medicine, agriculture or any similar subject and make his career in that profession. In addition, scientific activities have given rise to many varieties of crafts and allied services. Science, therefore, gives opportunities for career-making and pursuing professions and vocations. In fact, if we refer to preparation of the individual for the future as one of the aims of education, then science, as a subject, is rightly serving this purpose. In this age of science and technology there is a demand for technical personnel. The maintenance and creation of new departments, new establishments need the services of engineers, scientists and technicians and there will always be need for research workers in new fields of science. The study of science brings behavioural change in the learner and enriches his character and personality. Science gives opportunity for creative thinking and constructive imagination. Further science is a subject where ideas can be experimented upon and verified. The learner develops the habits of searching for the truth.
