It’s changed everything!
We can now consider the world around us in such a different way! Just thinking that you are made up of something called atoms is mind boggling enough!
You could also think about it from what areas of science that have become a thing since the discovery of the atom - particle physics for example even down to the explanations behind chemistry! Without the knowledge of the atom, would many of the things that are studied at GCSE and A Level science even be understood?

It’s hard to be specific without missing stuff out!

The discovery of the atom led to a huge part of physics - particle physics. We then discover what makes up the atom and then go even further!

Imagine the understanding of chemical reactions without the knowledge of electrons! It would make a lot of knowledge impossible to explain.
