Read the passage given below and answer the questions that follow.
Once upon a time, everybody "did" science, for their own amusement and excitement. All of us, as children, are scientists too - testing substances on our tongues, discovering gravity, peering under rocks, seeing patterns in the stars, wondering what makes the night scary and the sky blue.
Partly because the educational system has taught science only in a reductionist, left-brain style and partly because of society's demands for practical applications of technology, the love of science fades quickly for most youngsters. Those who love nature but dislike dissecting small animals soon learn to avoid high-school biology. Students who enroll in psychology courses, hoping to learn something about how people think and feel, find themselves learning more about rats and statistics than they ever wanted to know.
