Four fundamental forces in Nature decide all known interactions in the world. What are these four forces? How do they arise? Why four and not more? This article explores some of these questions, describing the properties of the fundamental four and looking at how they shape our daily life.
 
We constantly interact with microbes of all sizes and shapes. But, only a very small number of these interactions lead to disease. So, how do disease-causing microbes enter our body? How does the human body defend itself against them? This article explores some of these questions in the context of common cold.
 
“I tried to picture myself as a virus or a cancer cell and tried to sense what it would be like.” Jonas Salk (Scientist and discoverer of the polio vaccine)
Our planet is made of chemistry. All life, from microbes to plants to animals, uses chemicals to communicate with their world. Chemical cues allow us to communicate with the largest elephants and the smallest bacteria; and can be used to protect crops from pests, identify novel pharmaceuticals, or prevent the spread of disease. In this article, the author examines the role of chemical interactions between living organisms and their environment.
 

One of the most pleasant parts of our work is to go to a village where we are going to demonstrate science to children. We work very informally, usually where we are known at least to the children who sometimes turn up and talk to us, sitting on a log under a tree, ask us things and, as likely as not, give us more information than we give them.

This book is particularly a preparation for understanding Science. Science is built from curiosity, experience, analysis and finally the expression of a discovery. The main part of this process is arranging objects, activities and ideas so as to create a new order or pattern. Science is the discovery of new patterns. This book is to help children discover the patterns and arrangements of the world around them by using their hands, senses and minds. Understanding is the discovery of order.

From the discovery of alien worlds and the creation and evolution of galaxies to the reality of a dark side to the universe, cosmic interactions have been the golden key for unlocking many secrets about the universe. Through different examples, this article highlights how interactions between objects of outer space have constantly fulfilled our longing to make sense of the world around us.
 

The future of coding is set in stone. According to Forbes, coding will be even more relevant in 2025 than it is now. What is it about coding that makes it such an important skill to learn and demanded in so many industries?

Just like how English is the global business language, coding is the language of technology. As we approach the peak of artificial intelligence (AI), teaching kids to code becomes a crucial part of their education.

What you will see and appreciate in the beautiful creations out of leaves on the accompanying pages, and the thoughts these pictures will trigger in your mind. all have elements of the 'scientific temper', of the 'scientific attitutde. about which you would have perhaps come across countless mentions and discussions on earlier occasions But you would have found few solid examples of what, meant by these words, In this lovely booklet, you will find several examples which contain the elements aforementioned. Several others you will he able to create yourself.

Activities around Science and Craft - to make your children play and learn together and that too from simple materials or trash you throw away.

This book contains so many activities on toys you can make, play and learn so much about Science and Art.
