Tip Tuesday: Think Like a Scientist
Kick off the Scientific Process
This year’s 3M Young Scientist Challenge asks a big question: How can you improve lives for the future?
Thankfully, scientists throughout the centuries have proven that the scientific method is the best way to answer big questions!
- Make Observations
- Identify the Problem
- Narrow Down Your Problem
- Brainstorm Solutions
- Focus on One Idea
- Elaborate on Your Idea
- Your Plan
- Write Out a Script
- Submit your Video!
Then decide where you are in the process and focus only on that step for a few days. For tricks and tips at each step reference the project template. Be sure not to rush: A scientist moves carefully through the scientific method, so thoroughly complete one step before you move on to the next! Happy Innovating!
