In the previous video, Ask a Testable Question, Ota, Serina, and Arby helped us to develop an idea and form testable questions. Most importantly, we practiced using the following format: How does INPUT affect OUTPUT?
In this video you will hear valuable advice on how to perform your experiment and collect data. Take special note on how the JPL team uses VARIABLES in each of their test experiments. Remember, a variable is the one condition that you change in an experiment while all other details of your experiments remain CONSTANT. Since this video is filled with details, watch the video several times before moving on to the next page.
Special thanks to the team at Jet Propulsion Laboratory, Pasadena, California. On their website, you can view and download and assortment of educational materials such as NASA missions details, images, videos, audio and more.
