Want to be the next Einstein or Faraday?
At EdPlace we're keen to help you really get to grips with the key skills you need to be a great scientist!
The first skill that you'll need on this journey to greatness is the ability to plan.
Heard the old saying... 'failing to plan is planning to fail'?
Well, at EdPlace, we're here to make sure this doesn't happen!
As we work through the next activity, we'll be focusing on improving your planning skills and getting you to really think like a scientist.
This way, when it comes to completing practicals in the classroom they'll go smoothly and for the most part without a bang (although sometimes this is all par for the course!)
Ready to get going?
There are 6 key steps to planning any science experiment:
1) What are you hoping to find out? OBJECTIVE
2) What do you think is the reason for what you're seeing? HYPOTHESIS
3) What equipment will you require to find out?
4) What do you think will happen in the experiment? PREDICTION
5) What things do you need to make the same throughout the experiment? VARIABLES
6) How will you make this fair? VALIDITY
