First, let's take a look at the starting point for all scientific experiments: the Scientific Method. It was made famous by an Italian man named Galileo in the sixteenth century. It is simple and will help you ask and answer many of the questions you have about science.
There are five parts to the Scientific Method:
Observe some activity in the world around you.
Make up a possible explanation for that activity, called a hypothesis.
Use your hypothesis to make predictions about the activity.
Test those predictions.
Come to a conclusion about your hypothesis and its ability to predict the activity.
Why did the young scientist bring art supplies to science class?
She wanted to draw some conclusions!
Scientists have used this method for hundreds of years to understand their world. Now it's your turn!
The fun of this book lies in the fact that you can start reading just about anywhere and follow the idea as far as you like. And if this book doesn't take the idea as far as you would like to go, use your imagination and keep exploring the idea. You are invited to join this exciting journey into the world of experimental science. Welcome aboard — let's begin the journey!
Can you figure out where to put each of the scrambled letters? They all fit in spaces under their own column. When you correctly fill in the grid, you will have a quote from the brilliant scientist Albert Einstein. His theories and experiments led to an entirely new way of thinking about time, space, matter, energy, and gravity!
