Part 1: What is a Science Diagram?

Science diagrams are a series of diagrams and charts drawn by scientists to document and analyze their scientific findings. From biochemistry to mechanical physics, science diagrams are used to visualize facts. These can then be shared with other scientists as part of the documentation and examination of an experiment. Science diagrams typically include schematics, illustrations, graphs, and charts.

When it comes to visually sharing one's findings with the world, there is no better way to do so than with science diagrams. They can also aid in education, as teachers will also use these to convey information about the topics to their students. In turn, students can use these to better grasp scientific concepts that would otherwise be near impossible to convey simply by words.
