short essay on what is science. It is based on what we think it is.

What is Science?

Science to me is everything that surrounds us. It's to discover information about this world we live in, study this information, and use it however we will; a process that has started long, long ago, and will continue in generations to come. Everything in our world that we use somehow or someway was made by science. It started with discovering something new; then study what it can be capable of. See where this new founded information can be fit into use. Science was used to create something new.

In this day and age science has taken us to an entirely new place. From better batteries, to faster computers, to better gas mileage, there has just been a huge breakthrough in science. It is both chemistry and physics. In science of chemistry there is discovering elements and using these elements in chemical bonding. For physics, there are already discovered laws, and properties; such discoveries as gravity, motion, force, speed, velocity, acceleration, etc. Science even branches off as far as the universe and its discoveries.

Whether the discovery is 200 years old, 100 years old or present, it's science nonetheless. Science is all around us, from the laptops we use to the cars we drive, something had to be discovered and study for us to able to use either. Maybe it was chemical combustion to get the energy from oil so our cars can move, or even some physics to help us understand how much energy we can save if we make something for aerodynamic. Science is to discover information about our natural world, and even about space, to help us understand our existence.

Science to me is everything that surrounds us. (provide a better start)

It's to discover information. (avoid word contraction)

Establish better coherence in your output.

Is it everything (a noun) or is it "to discover" (a verb)? I think you should revise that intro so that it does not seem to refer to both a noun and a verb. Then again, maybe you should state that science can be thought of as something that is done or as a body of knowledge, in which case it is something you do and also a noun...

Okay, this is not bad, but it is a little bit simplistic. I think it will be better if you come up with one great observation and write the whole essay as support for that observation, that theme.

I'll choose my favorite observation from your essay:

Whether the discovery is 200 years old, 100 years old or present, it's science nonetheless.

I think you should write this as your thesis statement, and then write 3 body paragraphs. Make each body paragraph about a different idea related to this observation.

Here is an example of a body paragraph to support that thesis statement:
One way of seeing how science has different forms at different times is to consider the word technology. In modern times we do not think of a pencil as a piece of technology. Nowadays, the word technology refers to things like ipads and robots. But there was a time when a pencil was advanced scientific technology.

Write body paragraphs that support one main idea, which will be your theme.
