Abstract : Modern science has a far-reaching influence on the development of society. In the last four to five centuries the scientific progress ahs been rapid and astounding and yet it is often incomprehensible for people who are impacted by it but left out of the debates surrounding its theories and applications. Scientific progress is often seen as clashing with long held beliefs and values which impedes its application for full realization for the purpose of social goals. In these contexts, scientists and educator have a significant role to play given the fact that they have knowledge, experience and that they themselves are a part of the society that can benefit by scientific endeavors. The paper explores the importance and role of scientific community in sharing the utility value of science for society.

Keywords : Science, Society, Utility Value.
