What Are The Fields Of Science - HowToMakeScienceProjectsForKids.com

As some of you may know there are numerous fields of science just as there are numerous things to study.   In general, the study of just about anything can be considered science as long rules and guidelines are followed when recording what is being studied.   This is called the scientific method.   Everything humans do or say, every animal and organism, every weather pattern or geological event can be used as a focus of study.  So without going crazy listing every one of the fields of science out there (because there are a ton), here are just some of the ones we may touch on at How To Make Science Projects For Kids.  If you see a field you like, or have one you are interested in but don’t see it on the list, please leave a comment below and we’ll try to accommodate you in a future post!
