IMPORTANCE OF PHYSICS IN OUR DAILY LIFE - PART 4
19. Enhancing critical thinking
Doing experiments encourages learners to think critically and analyse data before coming up with conclusions. This helps them solve complex problems and make better decisions.
20. Developing observational skill
Experiments in Physics require students to observe and analyse data to come up with conclusions. This helps them develop important observational skills which will be useful throughout their lives.
21. Physics makes the modern world possible
Have you ever driven a car? Watched a show on a flat screen TV? Called your best friend on your mobile phone? Without physics, you wouldn’t have been able to do any of these things!
Even non-technical objects have been indirectly supported by physics. For example, the mass production of clothes would be impossible without physics. Completing a physics degree will allow you to learn more about the history of some of your favourite objects.
22. Understand the Universe. Physics centres around understanding the world. You will learn about matter and energy, study planets and galaxies and discover the workings. and limitations of nature’s laws.
23. Stimulating creativity
Doing experiments in a lab can stimulate creativity as students are encouraged to think outside the box when trying to solve problems. This encourages students to be innovative and come up with unique solutions.
24. Increasing confidence. Experiments can help boost student confidence as they see the results of their efforts first-hand. This will also motivate them to keep exploring and developing their skills.
