  • Step 2: Perform background research Perform background research about your idea. Learn the core ideas and vocabulary.
  • Step 3: Develop an hypothesis Develop a testable hypothesis. The hypothesis should be an educated guess about something that could be observed in an experiment.
  • Step 4: Design and perform an experiment Design and carry out a simple experiment to test the hypothesis.
  • TIP: Keep careful notes about what you do and what you observe during the experiment.
  • Step 5: Analyze your data Analyze your data using the background information you gathered earlier and draw a conclusion.
  • FACT: The word science comes from the Latin word for "to know."
