The word "science" comes from the Latin word "scire", which means "to know". Related words include omniscience, which means all-knowing, and conscience, which means "with knowledge". So - science means "to know", which generally refers to knowing about the world around us. The exhibits at the World of Wonders science museum, whether for educational display or for hands-on interaction, are designed to foster a knowledge about, and an appreciation for, the wonder of the world around us and how it works.
