Science is the study of the interconnected systems all around us. Science helps us to better understand and predict things about the universe.
What is the Scientific Method?
The scientific method is a body of procedures to investigate phenomena, acquire new knowledge, or correct and combine new findings with previous knowledge.
The steps of the scientific method are:
- Ask a Question
- Do Background Research
- Construct a Hypothesis
- Test Your Hypothesis by Doing an Experiment
- Analyze Your Data and Draw a Conclusion
- Communicate Your Results
Note: It is important for your experiment to be a fair test. A "fair test" occurs when you change only one variable and keep all other conditions the same.
