What is Science?

Science is a system of acquiring knowledge and it uses observations and experiments to describe and explain natural phenomena.

What is the scientific method?

The scientific method is a series of 6 steps that can help someone solve a problem or answer a question related to science.

Step 1: Make an Observation
Make observations and record them down. Use your 5 senses to help you out.

Step 2: Ask a Question
Ask questions linking to what you are trying to find out.

Step 3: Make a Hypothesis
Research more about this topic that you are trying to find out and think of what the conclusion could be.

Step 4: Conduct an Experiment
Test your hypothesis to find out more about the topic yourself.

Step 5: Draw Conclusions
After the experiment was completed, analyse your results and find out if your hypothesis is correct.

Step 6: Report Your Results
Explain your results. Present your experiment, observations and conclusions of the topic you found out.
