What is science?

The important thing is not to stop questioning. Curiosity has its own reason for existence. One cannot help but be in awe when he contemplates the mysteries of eternity, of life, of the marvelous structure of reality. It is enough if one tries merely to comprehend a little of this mystery each day, Albert Einstein.

Science is the body of knowledge that gives us an idea of how the world works. Science is made up of facts, theories, and methods. Facts are based on experiments and careful observations. Theories are explanations or models for understanding reality open to debate and possible modification.

Science can be divided into:

  1. Physical sciences study inanimate objects. They aim at finding immutable laws of nature. It encompasses a variety of fields that include astronomy, chemistry, geology, mineralogy, meteorology, and physics.
