Who We Are
At Scire, we have a different story to tell. We believe in and respect the power of knowledge and in our little stories we set out to inform our readers of its importance. We are a group of high school students with the sole aim of promoting knowledge and raising awareness of global environmental issues. The initiative taken by us, is unique and amongst the first, if not the first, online magazine by high school students in Pakistan relating to science and technology while simultaneously giving voice to problems generally ignored here.
Agreed that we have advanced unimaginably in the last two centuries. The Industrial Revolution threw us into a fast-paced era where every day new inventions were popping up. We have created the computer as a companion in our daily activities, we are on the brink of eradicating polio, hell we lit the entire world with electricity. “But with the good, comes the bad’.
Today, the world isn’t perfect after our careless endeavors. There are issues that still haunt the better part of the global population and Earth itself. Global warming is on the rise every day and is taking a toll on all of us. In Pakistan, people are dying everyday due to diseases as a consequence of impure water drinking. 10% of the people around the world don’t even know there is something like clean and transparent water. There is still hunger, poverty and illiteracy. And not all of us enjoy the fruits of technology owing to lack of education in many areas. We have not yet achieved perfection for there are still paths to walk and wars to conquer.
At Scire, we talk about those problems with our readers. We empower them with the knowledge to make ‘the little things matter’ so they can contribute to the big picture. At Scire, we tell the stories that really matter.
