Science Word of the Week

The Museum of Science and Dictionary.com are defining science with the best explanations of the coolest, weirdest, and wackiest science words.

Learning new words expands our knowledge and perspective. Not only their definitions, but their uses, origins, and fun facts about them help us dive into the world in a deeper way. And sometimes words are just plain fun! Language has the power to make us think and make us laugh. Science words are a rich source for both. That’s what the Science Word of the Week delivers on Fridays! Share with friends and family, discover new words, and learn more about the science in the world around you.
