Science, defined simply, is the systematized body of knowledge obtained through verifiable means. Fields of science are commonly classified into two major categories: the natural sciences, which cover natural phenomena, and the social sciences, which study human behavior and societies. These fields are further divided into pure science or applied science. Pure science includes the discovery of new truths with little account on their applications. Applied science is involved with the application of existing truths in new and practical means.

In this portal, WikiPilipinas aims to educate and familiarize Filipinos with all the scientific knowledge in the Philippines, from the important discoveries to the people behind them. This outline of topics has been provided by WikiPilipinas' pool of editors to guide readers and contributors, to reach the aim of creating an authoritative and comprehensive discussion on Philippine science.

If you want to help, please register and be part of the growing community of volunteers in WikiPilipinas.

NOTE: When creating articles, please make use of the proper categories provided by the editors in this outline. You may use the discussion page for any suggestion, concern or inquiry.
