Imagine a day without science… Impossible! From the electricity that warms your morning coffee, to the fuel efficiency of your car, your choice of foods in the market, your health care, climate predictions, and our national security—science is an integral part of our daily lives. Science has provided us with an extensive body of knowledge about our natural world, but it is also a way of viewing that world. Exploring, asking questions, making observations, testing our ideas, communicating outcomes—these are all part of how science operates and what make science exciting and creative.
Below is a list of the stories on our site highlighting the process of science.
John Taylor tells us about the evolution and diversity of fungi.
Carlo Sequin tells us about the connections between art, science, and mathematics, and discusses some of his sculptures.

These four Cal scientists talk about what the process of science means to them:
