Essential Questions

1) What is Science?

Dictionary Definition - The intellectual and practical activity encompassing the systematic study of the structure and behaviour of the physical and natural world through observation and experiment.

Personal Definition - Science is an understanding of how the world around us and certain phenomenas work and occur.

2) Scientific Method



The scientific method is a process for experimentation that is used to explore observations and answer questions. Scientists use the scientific method to search for cause and effect relationships in nature. In other words, they design an experiment so that changes to one item cause something else to vary in a predictable way.
The scientific method aids in helping our team focus our ISS project question and topic, construct a hypothesis, and finally design, execute, and evaluate our experiment.
