From the discovery of DNA to the development of lifesaving vaccines to the exploration of Mars, science powers many fascinating discoveries and significant advances that benefit us all.

The United Nations recognizes this, and has initiated World Science Day for Peace and Development on November 10.

This year, the focus is on quality science education for all. U.N.-promoted kits and tools like this interactive mathematics exhibition help inspire curiosity in young students.

Celebrate World Science Day by organizing an activity in your community.
