  Science, Chemistry, Energy ClassNotes #2 Dr McConeghy
If science weren't by far the most dependable method for controlling the world that has ever been devised, then systems like the telephones, the internet or ATMs would be totally impossible, not to mention air travel, modern manufacturing, genetic engineering, the pharmaceutical industry, etc. etc..
Science is a process which involves describing and establishing facts about the world, and then, testing those facts to see if they are correct.
Science has established a huge number of facts about the world, far more than can be understood or learned by any one person.

 Promoting Science Through America's Colonial Press - The Early America Review, Summer 1997
The core of this paper around which many insights develop is that despite the limited exposure of science in the colonial press, the newspaper was integral to the development of an experimental science, itself integral to the burgeoning capitalist society of a pre-revolutionary, colonial America.
The connection to British science and the Royal Society is under less of a strain than in the later period.
Thus, science in the press followed market and governmental forms with a structure of specialization and representation which I term 'republican science,' a form of public science that continues today.

 Rocky Road: Antoine Lavoisier
Born in 1743 to a wealthy upper-middle-class family, Lavoisier was elected to the Académie des Sciences at the age of just 23.
Soon after, he shocked many of his friends and colleagues by joining a deeply despised profit-driven tax-collecting firm and marrying the 13-year-old daughter one of the firm's senior members.
At the time, most geologists believed that earth's ancient landmasses had been submerged under a giant ocean, and that this universal sea was responsible for the layers of sediments they found.

 Contemplating a warmer Arctic   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-22)
Ned Rozell is a science writer at the institute.
If recent warming of the north continues, the sea ice that floats on the Arctic Ocean each summer will disappear by the year 2100, and there doesn’t appear to be any natural switch to turn off the change, according to a group of more than 20 scientists.
Richard Moritz of the University of Washington’s Polar Science Center said he wanted the group to subject the notion that the far north was on a warmer path to a test that might further validate the likelihood of an ice-free Arctic Ocean.

 'English' education provides science for the few - 27 April 1991 - New Scientist
Children taught science in countries where the education system is modelled on the English state school system score the highest marks.
But a study of science education carried out for the International Association for the Evaluation of Educational Achievement criticises the English-style system for educating so few to this standard.
In the Second International Science Study, coordinated by the Australian Council for Educational Research, pupils in the last year of secondary school in 24 countries were given standard tests in general science, physics, chemistry and biology.

 Georgia FACES - UGA gets grant for public school 'science of food'
By Faith Peppers University of Georgia With Georgia public schools struggling to meet the global demand for science education, the University of Georgia has secured a $1.4 million National Science Foundation grant to create "The Science Behind Our Food" for classroom teachers.
"That's the basis for this program." Results from the 2000 National Survey of Science and Mathematics Education showed that when asked about their qualifications to teach plant biology, only 46 percent of teachers reported they were very well qualified.
A startup summer institute, with teachers, GTFs and UGA faculty members, will develop programs to assess the science learning objectives that are hardest for students to master or for teachers to get across with available resources.

 Chemistry : Periodic Table : hydrogen : historical information
Robert Boyle (1627-1691; English chemist and physicist) published a paper ("New experiments touching the relation betwixt flame and air") in 1671 in which he described the reaction between iron filings and dilute acids which results in the evolution of gaseous hydrogen ("inflammable solution of Mars" [iron]).
However it was only much later that it was recognized as an element by Henry Cavendish (1731-1810; an English chemist and physicist who also independently discovered nitrogen) in 1766 when he collected it over mercury and described it as "inflammable air from metals".
Cavendish described accurately hydrogen's properties but thought erroneously that the gas originated from the metal rather than from the acid.
