Today we begin our STEM Careers project. We began with a reading: STEM 101. Then a survey, and then began to choose our field of interest. Once we know what we are looking for (see the project) then you can use the below sites to start your research.
Yesterday we talked about the Branches of Science and identified a few key disciplines (branches) which we can study here at Willamette and that we will learn about for this unit: they are all in these slides
This lesson focuses on the Scientific method. I hope you leave class today with a sense that there is a consistent process that science follows, but that it is also flexible and different for every situation. Our process that we will have in this class goes like this:
Form a Hypothesis (prediction)
Experiment Design (test)
Record and Analyze Results
Draw Conclusions (interpret)
Here’s our short set of slides (some of this is review)
