How Scientists Think
Looking for a project to do for your science fair? Try these downloadable science fair kits. They provide everything you need to get started thinking like a scientist, from forming a question to communicating results of your experiment.
Remember, science is about asking questions and that there can often be many answers to a single question. To figure out which answer is most correct, scientists follow a process called the Scientific Method.
The Scientific Method is a series of steps that helps scientists identify a question, think of a possible answer (the hypothesis) and then use experiments to test the hypothesis to see if it is true.
The important thing to remember is that all scientists will often try many experiments until they can be sure a hypothesis is true or not true. Once a conclusion is made, scientists report their results in either a written report or visually on a display board.
