Science is defined by, ' the intellectual and practical activity encompassing the systematic study of the structure and behavior of the physical and the natural world through observation and experiment.' 

Science is a part of our nation’s Core Curriculum. In other words, science is a mandatory class of education that all students must participate in order to progress onto their next level of academics. The allotted amount of science credits a student must acquire in order to successfully graduate their schooling, depends upon the student’s state, their institution of learning, and what their academic goals consist of.
