The word 'science' is derived from the Latin word 'scientia' which means knowledge. Therefore, science is about gaining knowledge either through observing, studying, experience, or practice. Entire knowledge acquired through science is about discovering truths, finding facts, uncovering phenomenon hidden by the nature. Observations and experimentation, in science, support in describing truth and realities through systematic processes and procedures. For me, science is an intellectual set of activities
Science is the concerted human effort to understand, or to understand better, the history of the natural world and how the natural world works, with observable physical evidence as the basis of that understanding1. It is done through observation of natural phenomena, and/or through experimentation that tries to simulate natural processes under controlled conditions. (There are, of course, more definitions of science.)
Consider some examples. An ecologist observing the territorial behaviors
of the science community at my school, decided to join the intensive program with barely any knowledge about biology. It didn't seem like a smart move at the time, but I'm glad that I had persistence because I learned so much about the field through the guidance from the team. Exploring PCR and Restriction Digests, my group and I were able to publish new proteins on the national GenBank. I learned more about biology and how to work/perform in a team. This motivated me to join the Science/Biology

SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY
Science and technology provide people with the knowledge and tools to understand and address many of the challenges. Students must be provided with
opportunities to access, understand, and evaluate current information and tools related to science and technology if they are to be ready to live in a 21st century
The study of science and technology includes both processes and bodies
Muro-ami are forbidden. This has increased fish populations and made it easier to catch the fish needed to support a family. The healthy reef community now attracts ecotourists and provides jobs for islanders.
2. What are some basic assumptions of science?
3. Distinguish between a hypothesis and a theory.
A hypothesis is the second step from the scientific method that forms an educated guess based off an observation. A theory is the information that was gathered to support the proof of an observation
Australia’s lack of science strategy unveiled
Chief scientist makes series of recommendations to improve the country’s skills in science, technology, engineering and maths
Australia’s chief scientist, Ian Chubb, has unveiled a blueprint to address Australia’s lack of a science strategy, with proposals aimed at improving skills, supporting research and linking scientific work to other countries.
Chubb has made a series of recommendations to the federal government to increase focus on science, technology
Science: A Blessing Or A Curse
Everything in the universe has its uses and abuses. The same applies to science. Science has revolutionized human existence and has made it happier and more comfortable. Modern science has many wonders. Electricity is one of its greatest wonders. It is a source of energy. It can run any type of machinery. With the help of electricity, we can light our rooms, run buses and trains and machinery, lift water for irrigation and can accomplish a multitude of other tasks
Blessing of Science
Blessings of science are numerous. Science has completely changed the living style of man. Now man is living in a totally 18 century. From home to office, from farm to factory, form village to town, in short everywhere in life now we can see the unlimited blessing of science.
At home, we find that science has provided many comforts to the human beings. Whether it is kitchen, lounge, shaker, chopper, toaster and many other appliance have brought a revolution in the working
