What is the scientific method?

The scientific method is a way to explore observations and answer questions.

1. The first step is to Ask a question. This means that one should be clear about what exactly they are trying to find out.

2. Research: Find out more about the experiment - This will allow you to clarify the best way to conduct the experiment.

3. Hypothesise: Come up with a prediction on what will happen.

4. Test out the hypothesis and see if it is accurate. Bonus points if the experiment is repeated several times to make sure the result wasn't a fluke.

5.Analyse the results and come up with a conclusion. See if it sums up with the hypothesis. if not, come up with another one and repeat the experiment.
