In the previous video, Examine Your Results, the JPL team dug deeper to examine the data collected from their experiments. Serina, Arby, and Ota listed multiple examples of details that need close attention, especially when conducting experiments.
“As much as we try to keep the experiment just to one VARIABLE, other things can come and complicate the result. So, hopefully you’ve collected enough data that overall you see something that explains and either confirms or shows that your hypothesis was wrong.”
Aside from creating ideas, doing research, making scientific questions, running the experiments, and collecting data, we find that communicating results is a huge reward. Besides, after weeks of good work, sharing your findings is half the fun! In this video we will hear about the TO DO’s and what NOT TO DO when sharing your results on your science fair display.
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.
