What is Science?

Science, from the Latin word scientia, is knowledge. It is what people have learned. It is the way that people acquire knowledge (this is often separately dubbed "the scientific method.") It is what people called scientists do.

PS Reviewing after resumption, I note that I should have emphasized that the people called scientists are paid to do what they call science.
