In more simple terms, science is knowledge about the natural world that is based on facts learned through experiments and observation. Unfortunately, we often make science too complicated for the average person, or worse we take for granted some of the basic science of the natural world which we depend on. Let’s take a look at some examples of science knowledge. 


1. the available body of facts or information indicating whether a belief or proposition is true or valid.

1. be or show evidence of.

So, you’re taking advantage of one of your favourite trails in the Elk Valley (be it hiking, biking or heading to your secret fishing hole) and you stumble upon a rather large pile of animal scat (a more polite word for animal poop).  “Ah ha,” you say to yourself, “this is evidence!” Yes, but evidence of what, exactly?

Kootenay Association for Science & Technology (KAST) is providing programming to local tech entrepreneurs and businesses in the Kootenay by partnering with Spring Activator and Volition to run an Investment Readiness Training program from March through May of this year.
