Scientific Method

The Scientific Method is a systematic way for you to find answers to questions that interest you.

The scientific method consists of six simple steps: 

1.  Ask a question

2.  Do research


3.  Form a hypothesis

4.  Test the hypothesis with an experiment 

5.  Analyze and draw a conclusion from your observations 

6.  Communicate your results

A few special things to remember when using this method are:

  •   It is a method of research in which a hypothesis is tested by means of a carefully documented experiment.
  •  The experiment should be conducted in such a way that can be duplicated by another researcher. 
  •  The  hypothesis must be testable.
  • The observations during the experiment must be measurable.
