The Scientific Method
The scientific method is a way to ask and answer scientific questions by making observations and doing experiments. In Technology, we use the scientific method often.
The steps of the scientific method are to:

  1. Ask a Question

  2. Do Background Research

  3. Construct a Hypothesis. A hypothesis is an educated guess at the answer to your question.

  4. Test Your Hypothesis by Doing an Experiment

  5. Analyze Your Data and Draw a Conclusion

  6. Communicate Your Results





You often hear the term "Science & Technology" but often Technology is lumped under "Science." Regardless, the method of technology is the same as the method of science. You use the scientific method in originating, arriving at a working hypothesis, and finally in solving technology problems as well as when applying technology.
