India Science (www.indiascience.in) is an Internet-based science Over-The-Top (OTT) TV channel. It is an initiative of the Department of Science and Technology (DST), Govt of India , implemented and managed by Vigyan Prasar (VP), an autonomous organisation of Department of Science and Technology. This 24x7 video platform is dedicated to science and technology knowledge dissemination, with a strong commitment to spreading scientific awareness especially with Indian perspectives, ethos and cultural milieu.

What views of nature of science do scientists hold, and what are the implications of these views for science education? For science educators, nature of science is an important component of scientific literacy. Yet for scientists, nature of science is rarely a topic of thought or discussion. This chapter presents dialogue from interviews with two scientists as they discussed their views of nature of science from the perspective of their own research area

Scientific Temper refers to an open, question seeking mind. ... Scientific Temper, Scientific outlook and scientific attitude may be philosophically and pedagogically different from one another but what is of practical importance is the common thread which runs through all three of them that is the method of science.

Science is a thing which is the thing which is behind everything. Science is derived from latin word "scientia" which means experience, experiment, and exploring these all are some key features of science and with science we can explore nature and understand how nature works. We should encourage scientific temper in people to reduce thought superstition.

मेरे विचार से वैज्ञानिक मनोवृति को बढ़ाने के लिए छात्रों द्वारा बनाए गए आविष्करों को उचित सम्मान और पुरस्कार द्वारा सार्वजनिक तौर पर उजागर करना चाहिए ताकि उसे देखकर दूसरे युवाओं का भी मनोबल बड़े |अगर कोई व्यक्ति इस क्षेत्र में रुचि रखता है और उस में वह काम करने की योग्यता है तो सरकार द्वारा उसे पर्याप्त सुविधाए उपलब्ध करानी चाहिए |विभिन्न प्रकार के कार्यक्रमों द्वारा लोगों को इसके बारे में जागरूक किया जाना चाहिए|

Science, from the Latin word 'Scientia', meaning knowledge, is a organizes enterprise that builds and organizes knowledge, through, experiments and predictions. science is all about asking questions and then finding answers using scientific methods. Scientific means based on the methods and principles of Science. it is attributed to those methods, objects or humans whose functioning and working is fueled by the principles of science. A scientific temper is the need of the hour of our country.

Scientific Temper implies the recognition that knowledge often progresses by disproving earlier ideas, beliefs, theories and laws. It considers knowledge as open ended and ever-evolving. It lays emphasis on verifiability and repeatability, wherever possible, and on the fact that scientific theories, laws and facts allow one to make predictions which can be tested.

I certainly do not understand why are physicists fighting over quantum mechanics and general relativity. My learnt friends, they are each others completers not competers. One is modern and other is classic. Quantum mechanics tell us about what's going in the smallest distances and General relativity tells us about what is happening in the largest distances. Both are equally correct about the energy but still we need to combine science , not divide it.nRemember Sir Einstein founded both of them.

SCIENTIFIC is the way of perception of things, involving reasoning and explanations. Anything and everything in the world is scientific, provided you see the logic in it.
SCIENCE is storehouse of knowledge, it is like a language that propels you to understand you and your surroundings and a medium to communicate your learnings.

SCIENCE PRIRITY IS MANKIND SURVIVAL AND MANY SACRIFICES HAVE TO BE MADE BY ANIMAL, PLANT KINGDOMS FOR HUMANITY?

FOR EFFECIVE WORKING OF COVID19 VACCINE, IT IS ESTIMATED THAT 250K SHRKS ARE NECESSARY AS THESE THESE CAN'T BE GROWN IN FARMS AS IT IS DIFFICULT TO MAINTAIN THEM BEING PREDATORS, THE OPTION LEFT IS TO HUNT AND GET THEIR LIVER OIL ?

IN VIEW OF THE ABOVE, ALL CURED COVID19 PATIENTS HAVE TO GIVE 5 TO 6 TIMES PLASMA DONATION TO SAVE WILD SHARKS ?
SHOW ANIMALTY AND SAVE SHARKS
