Science is a way to learn truths about the natural world through logic and experimentation.  The goal of a science education should be to learn truths that have already been discovered and to learn scientific methods for further discovery.  Kids should be taught the strengths and weaknesses of science and how to tell if an argument based on science is valid or not.

Chemistry is the study of the microscopic and sub-microscopic atoms and elements that combine to make all the stuff, living and non-living, in the universe.  You need to know at least a little chemistry to understand earth science and biology.
