• Science is a study of the nature that surrounds us both in its living and nonliving forms. Through observation, identification, and experimental investigation, scientists have developed theoretical explanations of the natural world we live in. Often these explanations have become so widely accepted that they become scientific theory and then scientific law. It is my goal to explore the development of these theories and laws in as many ways as possible, relate them in a historical context, and experience our own scientific investigations during the course of this year!
