Science is a process where we use what is called the scientific method.
Knowledge; knowledge of principles and causes; ascertained truth of facts.
Accumulated and established knowledge, which has been systematized and formulated with reference to the discovery of general truths or the operation of general laws; knowledge classified and made available in work, life, or the search for truth; comprehensive, profound, or philosophical knowledge.
Especially, such knowledge when it relates to the physical world and its phenomena, the nature, constitution, and forces of matter, the qualities and functions of living tissues, etc.; -- called also natural science, and physical science.
Any branch or department of systematized knowledge considered as a distinct field of investigation or object of study; as, the science of astronomy, of chemistry, or of mind.
The systematic study of humans and their environment based on the deductions and inferences which can be made, and the general laws which can be formulated, from reproducible observations and measurements of events and parameters within the universe. (Macquarie Dictionary)
A branch of knowledge based on the laws of nature.
The pursuit of systematized knowledge through reliable observation.
The process of developing a systematized knowledge of the world through the variation and testing of hypotheses. (See Engineering.)
Attempts to discover order in nature and use that knowledge to make predictions about what should happen in nature. See consensus science, frontier science, scientific data, scientific hypothesis, scientific law, scientific methods, scientific model, scientific theory.

a particular branch of scientific knowledge; "the science of genetics"
a body of knowledge that is constructed via observation, hypothesis, experimentation, and logic for the purpose of explaining and predicting events or behavior
a branch of knowledge or study especially one concerned with establishing and systematizing facts, principles and methods as by experimentation and hypothesis
a branch of systematized knowledge that is or can be made a specific object for rational study
a category of study
a field of inquiry in which hypotheses about the subject of study are both produced and tested through examination of the subject
a field of inquiry where hypotheses are generated from and tested by observations of the subject of inquiry Exactly
a field that has been validated by experiments and research that adhere to the tenets of the scientific method, and have been published in qualified journals
a simple description of the regularities in a phenomenal domain
a social construct of a group of people, in which a community deems a topic worthy of study by scientific methods, and those methods yield new knowledge that generates practical applications
a way of learning knowledge which uses careful methods to test ideas and observations
A branch of knowledge conducted on objective principles involving the systematic observation of and experiment with natural phenomena.
a methodology that relies on the observable and naturalistic axioms to design and interpret scientific experiments.
1. The observation, identification, description, experimental investigation, and theoretical explanation of natural phenomena. 2. Knowledge, especially knowledge gained through experience. LIFECRAFT is the science of skillful living.
systemized knowledge derived through experimentation, observation, and study. Also, the methodology used to acquire this knowledge.
noun - A systematic and formulated knowledge, especially of a specified type or on a specified subject like the science of Internet advertising and media solutions as prepared by Symaptico.ca
knowledge or study dealing with facts and/or truths, systematically arranged, showing the operation of (and conforming to) general laws; systematic knowledge of the physical or material world
The systematic observation of natural phenomena for the purpose of discovering laws governing those phenomena. The body of knowledge accummulated by such means. (From Dorland, 28th ed)
Spirit awareness; the discernment of Reality; the knowledge of basic principles with which mankind finds that it has no reflection world nor phenomenal/shadow world to deal with and discovers idea, the thing itself, is all there is. Science is the Right, the Good, the Truth, that has no knowledge of anything but its own self-conscious identity: God-Man-Universe.
Knowledge or a system of knowledge covering general truths or the operation of general laws especially as obtained and tested through the scientific method and concerned with the physical world and its phenomena.
Science no longer seeks to explain phenomena and arrive at any kind of reality; rather, it now seeks to classify phenomena according to preconceived models. This, however, is what we would call "art" according to our traditional categories.
A branch of knowledge or study dealing with a body of facts or truths systematically arranged and showing the operation of general laws.
The study of the material universe or physical reality in order to understand it. This is done by making observations and collecting data about natural events and conditions, then organizing and explaining them with hypotheses, theories, models, laws and principles. Science (forestière)
the process of gaining knowledge based on making repeated observations about nature in controlled conditions (experimentation) and attempting to explain what causes those observations (theorizing) through constructing hypotheses that can be tested experimentally. Science's only purpose is to gain knowledge. Sometimes that knowledge may eventually lead to things mankind finds useful technology.
methodological study, observation, identification, description, experimental investigation, and theoretical explanation of natural phenomena
A method of discovering predictable laws of nature, based on careful observation and experimentation. A replacement for Aristotle's method of deducing physical laws based on philosophy alone. Despite its obvious success, it is denounced by many theists when it conflicts with their religious beliefs.
People study science to learn about the physical world.
Science is the systematic study of the natural world. Science involves the use of a systematic method called the Scientific method which has the following basic steps: Observation; question; hypothesis; prediction based on hypothesis; test(may involve experiment or more observations); conclusion(a judgment of the likelihood that the hypothesis is correct); communication to the outside world sufficient to allow others to repeat the test or build on the scientist's results This latter aspect allows for repeatability and gives science its relative objectivity.
Science is both a body of knowledge and a set of processes for advancing that knowledge. More specifically, science is mankind's interconnected, internally consistent, growing body of knowledge about natural and man-made objects and phenomena of the past, present, and future; a body of knowledge that is based on repeatable experimentation with, or observation of, these natural and man-made objects and phenomena, that is organized and extended using logic and mathematics, and that is validated by the testing of hypotheses.
explains phenomena by establishing the systematized relationships that exist among all the factors or variables involved. Page 33
A way of knowing about the natural world based on observations and experiments that can be confirmed or disproved by other scientists using accepted scientific techniques.
Science, in the broadest sense, refers to any system of objective knowledge. In a more restricted sense, science refers to a system of acquiring knowledge based on the scientific method, as well as to the organized body of knowledge gained through such research.
Science is the academic journal of the American Association for the Advancement of Science and is considered one of the world's most prestigious scientific journals. The journal is peer-reviewed, is published weekly, and has a print subscriber base of around 130,000. Because institutional subscriptions and online access serve a larger audience, its estimated readership is one million people.AAAS, "http://www.aaas.org/aboutaaas/ What is AAAS?"
Science '80 was a general science magazine published by the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS). It was intended to "bridge the distance between science and citizen", aimed at a technically literate audience who may not work professionally in the sciences. The AAAS also publishes the famous science journal of the same name, Science, the common naming leading to some confusion.
