1. Chemistry creates life !
Yes ! What is Life ? It is just an interaction of chemicals.
Whatever you think, whatever you do is just a series of chemical reactions inside your body.
2. Understanding the nature of materials around you
Why do leaves change colour in the fall? Why are plants green? How is cheese made? What is in soap and how does it clean? These are all questions that can be answered by applying chemistry.
The study of materials is intriguing. Knowing which material to select for which application is very important no matter what branch – Mechanics, Electronics or anything !
3. Getting to know the fundamental building blocks of Matter
Ever played LEGO ? Atoms and Molecules are similar to the building blocks of LEGO.
It is fun playing around with these blocks and combining them in n different ways.
4. You get to know how things combine
Those Chemical Reactions aren’t mere reactions, but the science of how things combine at the molecular level. Learning Chemistry will allow you to understand how things combine in nature. You will also learn how things have different properties before and after combining and how we can use them to develop new technology.
5. Everything is Chemical
Each and every thing around you is a chemical. Their motion is governed by physics and heir comprehensive study of properties and reactions is called as Chemistry.
It won’t be an exaggeration to say that Chemistry is the study of “Everything” !
6. Properties of Substances in Nature
With Chemistry, you get to learn how things behave in nature. The properties of these substances are very useful in developing newer applications and devices.
7. You can improve your memory !
Remembering Chemical reactions, require a great deal of memory power. Once you start learning Chemistry, your memory power would sky-rocket !
8. You can recreate the Natural World
Tell us the compound you want to create and we will recreate it for you artificially.
No need to go to the seas and oceans in search of Sodium Chloride (NaCl). Come to our lab and we will recreate the naturally occurring table salt conveniently (and ofcourse artificially).
9. Chemistry Laboratory
Chemistry labs are an interesting place to work, whether you are a student or a teacher. Different fumes and precipitates of different colours and bad smelling compounds (read Ammonia) brings an interesting side of the chemical world to us.
There are lots of interesting chemistry projects you can do using common everyday materials. Chemistry projects don’t just go BOOM! They can glow in the dark, change colors, produces bubbles and change states.
Watching Chemicals in action is truly a treat !
10. You can change the World
There are branches in Chemistry like Green Chemistry, Fuel Efficiency, Clean Energy have chemists working hard for a better world. A world which eliminates production of toxic chemicals, uses fuel efficiently, and produces energy in the cleanest way possible.
You can change the world by contributing to these challenging fields in Chemistry.
