What is the Process of Experimentation?

The process of experimentation or the scientific method is a process that scientists use to conduct experiments. If you want to learn more about science and the scientific method, check out our episode with science teacher and television host, Mr. Steve Spangler!

This is what the scientific method is: make a question/observation, make a hypothesis, conduct an experiment, chart data, and draw a conclusion! An observation or question that you have is the first step. It can be like “do plants really need the Sun to grow?” After that, you make a hypothesis or a scientific guess on what the answer of the question might be. Then, comes your experiment to test out your question or observation. You also collect data or results to conclude your experiment. Then, draw your conclusion. It is the results and the answer of the question through experimentation. That is the scientific method!
