Science is defined as knowledge that is opposed to intuition and belief. Science can also be interpreted as a new method or discovery to solve a problem. Science learning is done by observing, studying, and experimenting to determine the nature of the thing being researched. Studying science requires creativity to generalize existing data to make hypotheses about possible physical processes, as well as describe these processes in mathematical equations. The results of science learning are not only used to explain natural phenomena but can also be used to explain social phenomena.
Science learning is done by conducting observations, studies, and experiments based on the data collected. This is because the media is only limited to print media. In addition to the limited types of media, the limitations of the media in providing information about the object of observation also affect the data collection process. In addition, the observations obtained sometimes can only be applied to certain environmental conditions. As for the application in other environmental conditions, observations must be made from the beginning again. The science learning method cannot be separated from the development of the media. The development of the media is influenced by technological developments. The development of technology makes the types of media more diverse. Not only print media, various electronic media can be used as a means to collect information about the object of observation. In addition, electronic media can also be easily accessed anytime and anywhere. Various facilities provided by electronic media should be utilized properly to develop science learning methods.
Media is not only used as a place to find sources of information or data for science learning. However, the media can also be used as a suggestion for publication of observations. Besides aiming to appreciate the results of observations that have been made, it can also be used as a provider of information for others. Thus, the results of these observations can be used as a basis for observations that will be carried out by other scientists by changing several methods based on certain environmental conditions. The results of observations that have been published in the media can be used as a basis for learning science.
The media can also be used as a forum for scientists to convey scientific issues in the form of the latest discoveries, natural phenomena, and technological developments. With attractive packaging, these science issues can attract many people to study science. The more people who are interested in science, the more people will do research. From the results of these studies, it is hoped that it can solve the problems that exist in the community. Natural phenomena that are informed through the media will be easily channeled to the public. The existence of information about natural phenomena in the media can broaden public knowledge about science. Natural phenomena that occur can be used as a basis for research in science learning, to determine the nature or behavior of the universe. For example, the occurrence of tides caused by the behavior of the moon and sun.
