What is science about?
Science is a way of investigating, understanding, and explaining our natural, physical world and the wider universe.
It involves generating and testing ideas, gathering evidence – including by making observations, carrying out investigations and modelling, and communicating and debating with others – in order to develop scientific knowledge, understanding, and explanations.
Scientific progress comes from logical, systematic work and from creative insight, built on a foundation of respect for evidence.
Different cultures and periods of history have contributed to the development of science.
