Science

Science is a subject that tries to understand and explain natural events and the world around us.

Science is everywhere.

Scientists come up with ideas to investigate and then carry out experiments to collect data to test if their hypothesis is correct.

They gain new knowledge and information based on the evidence they collect.

Scientists apply their skills to develop new technologies to help society such as being able to save lives by organ donation and intensive care units; making new medicines and drugs; designing satellites to improve communications, study the Earth, and understand the universe.
