Science is one of the many hobbies included in the The Sims 2: FreeTime. High science enthusiasm allows a Sim access to the Aspirational Laboratories secret lot. Having a serious or neat personality will raise the enthusiasm for this hobby faster.

The wonders of science are very appealing to some Sims. Studying the stars or ants, practicing or making medicine, will get them even more enthusiastic about it. Sims who have high logic will be more enthusiastic about science.
