2 Is Chemistry For You? Do you like challenges? Do you like to solve problems?Do you ever wonder about what things are made of and why things change?Do you like to apply mathematics to real situations?Do you like energy (heat, explosions, light, colors, etc.)?Do you like working in a lab (or shop)?
3 The Scientific MethodThe Scientific Method is used to solve mysteries regarding science or the world around us. It involves wondering why something exists or happens, formulating a question, researching and experimenting to find an answer and, hopefully, being able to arrive at some sort of conclusion based on your experience.
4 By applying the Scientific Method! If these questions or the Scientific Method capture your interest, perhaps you should explore the sciences as a field of study.How can you explore?By applying the Scientific Method!Take some science classesTalk to professors and/or other professionalsRead material on various topics
