Scientific inquiry requires students to use higher order thinking skills as they learn science using a hands-on minds-on approach. It sometimes proved injurious to human health. Your membership promotes scientific literacy and gives millions of students opportunities to fall in love with science.

A superficial evaluation might conclude that the charges of ‘intellectual imposture’ and ‘uncritical naivety’ levied from either side are simply the millennial manifestation of the earlier ‘two cultures’ conflict of F R Leavis and C P Snow, between the late-modern divided intellectual world of the sciences and the humanities.

For example, positivist social scientists use methods resembling those of the natural sciences as tools for understanding society, and so define science in its stricter modern sense Interpretivist social scientists, by contrast, may use social critique or symbolic interpretation rather than constructing empirically falsifiable theories, and thus treat science in its broader sense.

When asked what they think needs to change so that women can play a more significant role in science and research, one suggested including women in the leadership of research components, people changing their mindsets towards women, and young girls being encouraged by special fellowships at national and international levels.
