Think about what interests you...now, ask a question about it. For example, I enjoy soccer. I wonder if my cleats help me run faster!
That will be your purpose for the experiment!
An Experiment - come up with an idea that will result in learning that is a benefit to someone and adds to the human knowledge base - work with a partner, or alone, to think through the purpose, hypothesis, materials and method of what they want to investigate - do the experiment - record your observations, results and conclusion - put everything onto Powerpoint, lined paper or a large poster in a neat, organized way and be prepared to present it to your classmates.
Remember to: - write up the experiment using the steps of the Scientific Method! These can be done on computer, then printed, cut out and glued onto a poster board if you don't want to use Powerpoint. Be sure to take your notes home to remember what each step means!
