Our world is shaped by the discoveries of science. Imagine you lived in a world where science was neglected. The world as you know it would be completely different! Nearly all cutting edge scientific work and discoveries build on the work of others. As Sir Isaac Newton put it:

"If I have seen further, it is by standing on the shoulders of giants."

There is no better way of understanding the world we live in today than by looking at the works of those who changed that very world we inhabit with their pure genius. Click on the links below to read more about each scientist.

Aristotle (384 – 322 BCE)

Galileo Galilei (1564 – 1642)

Sir Isaac Newton (1642 – 1726)

Edward Jenner (1749 – 1823)

Charles Darwin (1809 – 1882)

Marie Curie (1867 – 1934)

Albert Einstein (1879 – 1955)

All of these great scientists started off at the bottom, developing their ideas about the natural world around them and building their understanding of nature in all its guises. As their knowledge and understanding grew, so did their ability to describe, explain and investigate the world around them.

You, too, could make world changing discoveries… something that could save lives, send us to the stars or perhaps most important of all, inspire others to follow you. At Make Science Easy, it is our aim to set you on the path to success and enjoyment in science.
