    2. Why Study Science? • We live in a technological society brought about by scientific inquiry

    3. Why Study Science? • Science encourages discovery and a healthy skepticism.

    4. Scientific Theory • Observations (facts) • Laws • Data • Predictions

    5. Tools of Science • Experimentation • Laboratory • Field • Mathematical Modeling • Technology • Social Context

    6. Science is a Social Process • Communication of Results • Argument • Social Context • Public Need • Public Discourse • Science in the News
