Basic Science: Understanding Experiments

  • JANET SUMNER: Through hands-on practical science, this course will give you insights into how to conduct scientific experiments and how to use the data gathered to understand the natural world.
  • And to do that, you'll begin your first experiment to gather data-- 74 grams-- and get introduced to some essential skills needed to do science practical work.
  • By the end of the course, you'll have developed the skills needed to study science further, including careful observation, systematic note taking, interpreting your data, and great experimental design.
  • JANET SUMNER: And that is DNA, the blueprint of life.
  • These will all give you an idea of how scientists understand the world around us.
