How to Do a Serious Science Project

This ‘Advanced’ section of projects walks you step-by-step through how to do a science experiment using the Scientific Method, how to take data, how to write up your results, and also how to report your findings the way scientists do in the real world!


The methods taught here are the same ones I teach in engineering courses at the university, so you’re getting the ‘real deal’ when you dive into these projects. I’ve provided you a variety: from the Easy Rocketry project to the more intensive underwater R.O.V. Robot (which is best done over several days). You can apply these techniques I’ve shown here to any of the projects and activities on the e-Science website!
