You get to learn what science is, and how its discoveries impact society and the world around us. Then get a glimpse into the many interesting careers available that involve physics.
After completing this tutorial, you will be able to complete the following:
What do the laws of physics deal with?
~ The laws of physics deal with force and motion, gravity, electricity, magnetism, sound, light, and heat.
What are some careers available to physicists?
~ Physicists can work in education as teachers or researchers. They can also work in careers that involve space and Earth sciences, such as astronomy and geology. Physicists can also work in industrial fields such as construction and semiconductors. In addition, physicists can work in areas such as engineering, consulting, environmental sciences, publishing, communications, medicine, and even computer science.
What traits should physicists have?
~ Physicists should be curious and ready to observe the physical world carefully, ask questions about the world, and try to answer them. They should also be good at problem solving and be able to make accurate measurements. This will allow them to find the answers to their questions, to record their findings correctly, and to reach sound conclusions.
