Science is an ongoing process. As research becomes even more specialized and fragmented, it’s clear that there is no single path from hypothesis to discovery. What lies along the way?
The scientific method is much more than the technical details of experiments: it’s the culture of the lab, the politics of science funding, the art of experimental design, and the science of telling a good story. What gets left out of scientific publications? What don’t we hear about in popular articles about scientific discovery and technological innovation?
Method features stories about science in the making. Rather than focus on discovery or futuristic potential, we want to think critically about process—how science actually gets done. We want to ask questions that open new conversations about science in the popular media:
What is science?
What is science for?
Who makes science?
Who is science for?
What if science were different?
