I'm not sure that "science" applies as a subject of consideration in 
Shakespeare's plays. However, as pseudosciences, including alchemy, 
witchcraft, and Prospero's magic have already been mentioned, I would 
add Owen Glendower's prognostications (from Henry IV, part 1) to this list.

Ceremon claimed that he used science, not magic, to revive Thaisa. 
Helena made a similar claim for her cure of the king's fistula.
