The Scientific Method

The scientific method for our research is to pose a question, carrying out research and come to a conclusion with an experiment.

The Scientific Method is a systematic set of techniques for investigating a problem, acquiring new knowledge, adding on or correcting previous knowledge. It also attempts to reduce the influence of bias or prejudice by the scientist when experimenting a hypothesis. The techniques include:
1. Ask a question. 
2. Do background research
3. Construct a hypothesis
4. Test the hypothesis with an experiment
5. Accept or reject the hypothesis
6. Report results 
6. Revise the hypothesis (rejected) or draw conclusions (accepted)
