The scientific method is the 5 steps used to conduct an experiment, each step leads you from starting to finishing your experiment
Ask yourself a scientific question. Can this do that? What happens if I do this?
Research your question, has it been done before? Safety rules? Research is very important to preforming the experiment
Try to solve your own question, use part knowledge or guess, you will find the answer later in the experiment.
Use the items you have, and preform the experiment that you asked the question for
What happened in the experiment? Record what happened on a paper, or online.
Was your hypothesis correct? How did the experiment go? Ask yourself these questions based on your data.
