What is Science?
‘Science is a means of improving our knowledge and understanding of the universe based on the collection of observation-based evidence.’
Scientists are curious people who like to solve problems
The process of science starts with a question. Scientists observe, listen, describe, record and carry out experiments to answer questions about the world and universe around them.
What is a Scientific Enquiry?
As scientists, we need to carry out scientific enquiry or investigations to answer questions or to prove what we thought would happen was correct.
Types of scientific enquiry:
Comparative and fair testing
Observations over time
Identifying and classifying
Researching using secondary sources
