Most science classes focus on imparting scientific knowledge to students, but not how to DO science itself. In this course, learners will get to be scientists by doing actual science. Learners will design and conduct their own, original science experiments. They will be guided through the process of how to record, interpret, and report their results. Learners will choose their own topics. I will work with them to craft a meaningful project within their field of scientific interest, while...
Learners will: ▪ Formulate a hypothesis ▪ Design an experiment to test the hypothesis ▪ Write a research proposal ▪ Conduct their experiment ▪ Keep records ▪ Analyse their results ▪ Report their findings in a paper ▪ Create a scientific poster ▪ Present their research
I have an MS in Space, a BS in Agroecology, and have conducted research for over a decade.
Each week students will receive a document with reading/viewing material, questions about the material, and a weekly assignment. Students will turn in the assignment by the check-in day, two days before the live meeting class. Reading/viewing material should take approximately 45 minutes to complete. The weekly assignment will typically take less than one hour. During the implementation section, weeks six through nine, students will conduct their research. The time commitment during these weeks will vary based on your learner’s design.
Learners will need a composition note book for their lab book. This book can not be spiral bound. Experiment materials and equipment: I will help the learner to design an experiment that relies on few or mostly commonly available household materials. However, it may be helpful to purchase some material or equipment depending on what research project your learner chooses. I suggest establishing a budget of no more than $50 with your learner. As a class we will discuss some of the funding limitations scientists have in a professional setting and how this and our own experiments’ budgets influence research design.
Learners will receive personal feedback on each of their assignments. If you need a letter grade, report, certificate or another form of documentation for your records, I am happy to provide it.
30 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 2 - 4 hours per week outside of class.
