Make an observation
Form a question
Form a hypothesis
Conduct an Experiment
Analyse the Data and Draw a Conclusion


The scientific method aims to explain natural phenomena. All of the steps can occur in a different order but mostly in the order above. Scientists throughout history have used the same method to answer questions they don't understand. Sometimes you have to repeat the scientific method if you observe something else, or if the data doesn't support the hypothesis.
