In Brief
While not explicitly scientific, exploration and experimentation are essential parts of science. Watch this video to see what you can do with just a simple piece of paper.

So, some might not consider this science. But really, science is just the exploration of the world around us. More specifically, it is the systematic study of the behavior and structure of the physical and natural world through things like observation and experimentation. It’s working with materials, putting them together, and tearing them apart to see how they function. It is keeping measurements and collecting data. It is using this information to form hypotheses about what will happen, and testing those ideas. It’s geometry and biology and cosmology and physics and a plethora of other things. In the end, it can be defined in a number of ways and, well, the video is pretty neat.

If nothing else, it is a great way to stimulate your mind (or that of a young person that you know) on a rainy day.
