    Please help

    "Also it will aid to progress in science and technology"-is it better to say "Also it will lead to the progress in science and technology" or some other variant? Help me please and thank you in advance.

    Yes, "lead" is better.

    not a teacher

    Delete the article "the".
    Also, it will lead to progress in science and technology.

    I could go either way with "the".

    I take your point Mike. It seems unlikely to me for the sentence as it stands, but not impossible if such progress has previously been mentioned.

    I don't like "... it will aid to progress" at all.

    It will aid progress ...
    It will lead to progress ...

    They don't mean the same thing, though.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
