Understanding Science website

Understanding Science, accessible at http://undsci.berkeley.edu/ is a collaborative project led by Roy Caldwell, a professor of integrative biology at the University of California Berkeley, along with colleague David Lindberg. The project's coordinator is Judy Scotchmoor, assistant director of the UC Museum of Paleontology at UC Berkeley.

The audience for the Web site is the general public as well as the educators (from kindergarten to undergraduate level) who are an essential part of young people's introduction to the scientific process and body of knowledge. Links to teacher resources include resources targeted to primary, middle school, high school and undergraduate-level educators. Instead of the five-part list representing a single scientific method in a textbook, there is an interactive chart showing how science works: the many motivations leading to exploration and discovery; the ways that ideas are tested out; the role of community analysis and feedback; and possible benefits and outcomes that result from scientific work.
