# Science History

When did Science begin? When was the first technology invented? How we explain the world around us has changed enormously over the course of human existence, and it is only through a rich understanding of science history that we can see how we got to where we are today. But whereas we can learn a lot in a science museum, there are so many more fascinating wonders to be discovered that cannot fit between four walls. Every day has another scientific marvel pinned to it, so follow us as we take a journey through the timeline of science and technology to discover what happened on this day in the history of science.
