A Method to the Madness
Join us to learn about science research and the scientific method!
Curious about what makes "good" scientific research? In this two-hour lab, students will learn about the basics of science research by applying the scientific method! They will propose and test a hypothesis by performing a small research project with their peers. Along the way, the young scientists will collect and analyze data and learn how to present their results.
By the end of this lab, participants will:
- understand the scientific method and what makes science “good” or “bad;”
- learn how to formulate a hypothesis and create a method to explore it;
- collect and analyze data;
- organize their findings into a presentation.
