Science referred to knowledge, and collecting knowledge. There were several fields in science. On Krypton, prior to its' destruction, science was considered the supreme ruler, as the planet was governed by the Kryptonian Science Council.

Many supervillains used science for their own personal gain, causing hardship and terror among the general human populace. One who practiced or studied science was called a scientist. There have been multiple occasions when the Super Friends have had to stop a mad scientist from causing havoc from his or her terrible scientific creations.
Doctor Lucius LeBon was told by others in the scientific community that his Planet-Splitter was doomed to fail as an experiment. This turned out to be true when he attempted to use it to cut Cygnus-Uno, and it wouldn't power up.
