A scientist is a person who works in science. A scientist tries to understand how our world, or other things, work. Scientists are people who make observations, ask questions and do extensive research work in finding the answers to these questions.
Scientists work for governments, companies, schools and research institutes. Some scientists teach at universities and other places and train people to become scientists. Scientists often make experiments to find out more about reality, and sometimes may repeat experiments or use control groups. Scientific work is also carried out in laboratories. Scientists are more likely to be atheists than the rest of the general population.
Types of scientists [change]
Scientists can work in different areas of science. Here are some examples:
- Scientists that study physics are physicists.
- Scientists that study chemistry are chemists.
- Scientists that study biology are biologists
- Scientists that study rocks are geologists
Science is the study of all things both living and non-living in the environment around us. Scientists use experiments and tests to figure out, for example, if something is metal or not.
