Science education is important as it equips students with scientific knowledge that can enrich their everyday lives. It helps students to solve problems, learn to be rational as well as be critical in their thinking. However, science learning is deemed challenging as students see the subject as difficult and sometimes tedious to learn. Thus, interest in science is essential to ensure continuous learning in science. It is important to promote positive attitudes towards science among students. Positive attitudes towards science are associated with better achievement in science, increased cooperation as well as participation in class.
