ScienceABC.com was launched with the sole objective of finding and sharing fun and interesting science facts. We believe that Science is a fascinating and valuable area of study for people of all ages, and we’re not alone! This website is curated by a team of professionals who are passionate about Science. Our greatest hope is that the fun we have curating this content is the same for everyone who reads it.
To quench the thirst of human curiosity about everything that happens around us in the environment and universe.
The Story So Far
We have all had both good and bad teachers at various points in our lives. The good ones were those who could ignite our imagination and curiosity. STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) as a field of education creates fear among many. But we believe that if told in a simpler way, it can be fascinating for one and all. This thought gave birth to ScienceABC.com in 2015. Since then, our mission has been to find interesting science questions and provide answers to them using proper scientific resources and journals. We hope that you find them useful and eye-opening! If you have any feedback or additional questions, you can write to us at firstname.lastname@example.org

Akash Peshin is an Electronic Engineer from the University of Mumbai, India and a science writer at ScienceABC. Enamored with science ever since discovering a picture book about Saturn at the age of 7, he believes that what fundamentally fuels this passion is his curiosity and appetite for wonder. His foremost aspiration as a communicator of science is to purge people of the dogma that learning science and mathematics is laborious and intimidating. When taught in the right way, they can be as wondrous and engaging as art. He believes that teaching science is not just about presenting objective facts, but about telling a story. Storytelling is, after all, the essence of being human.
