What do you understand by "science"?

Although I have my proper idea about what science is,
I want to know what your idea about it!

Is science a method?
A set of knowledge?
a verb?
a group of people?
Can physics, math, logic, economics, medicine, art, dance, law, cooking,... be called sciences? why or why not?
Or are all above questions totally missing the point?

It is a method.
Science aims to create abstract models, that match reality in the case of applied sciences.
These models are created from observations of reality, pure logic, and the other previously created models.
By using those, we can have a better understanding of what happens, and predict what would happen "if ...".
