Science is a process of discovery and innovation that has challenged some of the oldest institutions of civilization and allows humans to alter the entire planet in a way no other species ever has or can. The method, at its core, is remarkably simple, but though every living person is affected by science, few practice it, and even fewer understand the difference between science and the results it produces. This presentation will explore the basic steps of science with real-life examples, and show how anyone can be a scientist.
