In many Science and Engineering disciplines students spend considerable parts of their time doing a wide range of practical or laboratory work. Here the learning is very 'hands on' and classes are designed to allow students to practise and develop a wide range of discipline-based techniques and personal skills.
Hereof, what is practical work in science?
By 'practical work' we mean tasks in which students observe or manipulate real objects or materials or they witness a teacher demonstration. Practical work can: motivate pupils, by stimulating interest and enjoyment. teach laboratory skills. enhance the learning of scientific knowledge.
Why is it important to know chemistry?
Chemistry is important because everything you do is chemistry! Even your body is made of chemicals. Chemical reactions occur when you breathe, eat, or just sit there reading. All matter is made of chemicals, so the importance of chemistry is that it's the study of everything.
Why is the study of biochemistry important?
It is a laboratory based science that brings together biology and chemistry. By using chemical knowledge and techniques, biochemists can understand and solve biological problems. Because of its breadth, biochemistry is very important and advances in this field of science over the past 100 years have been staggering.
