Answer

Science is a way of explaining how the world works. It contains a set of observable facts and measurements that, in principle, anyone can verify. Science also contains a set of rules and relationships among the terms (i.e., "gravity is an attractive force, and larger masses exert a greater gravitational pull upon other masses."). In short, science provides a structure and a framework to help us understanding the natural world.
