Now we get to figure out what is what - in other words, we'll crunch numbers and read between the lines to figure out how our test measured up to our hypothesis.
In the sixth science fair project challenge episode, we are going to discuss how to analyze all the data you collected from your experiment.
If you found these homeschool science tips to be helpful, would you please take a moment to rate it in iTunes or Stitcher? This would help me tremendously in getting the word out so that more ear buds are filled with science-teaching encouragement.
The sixth step of the science fair project is to analyze the data. This phase is patterned after step five and six of the scientific method where the scientist analyzes what he has observed and recorded so that he can make a statement about whether or not his hypothesis was true.
The students doing the science fair project have finished their experiment and are ready to analyze the data they have collected. They need to:
Now, the students need to:
The testing is finished. The answer has been discovered.
All that is left is for the students to pull it all together and share with others what they have done!
