How? The Acceptance of Scientific Laws

How Do Scientists Know...

Through an examination of Steno’s Law of Superposition, this video explains the importance of empirical data collection for gathering evidence in support of scientific laws. With the simple and entertaining analogy of pants in a laundry basket, Steno’s contribution to science – particularly palaeontology – will help students to understand the rigour that must go into a scientific law for it to be accepted.
