What is Science?
Scientists try to explain the world around us and why things happen the way they do. They do this by observing objects and events, and recording what happens and when. Scientists will then use this information, or data, to test different ideas (known as hypotheses) to see if they really work.
Even if the data supports an idea, things may change later. Advances in technology can reveal even more information that can change what we know completely!
Whatever happens, scientists will continue to observe events and record and collect information, helping us to improve our scientific understanding of the Universe and everything in it.
