How Outschool Works
Don't see a time that works for you?
This 6-week course aims to teach learners about experimental design and the scientific method through experimentation and critical thinking. Each week, we will use various examples to understand concepts on a specific step of the scientific process (see course schedule below). Some of the topics we will cover in this course include: formulating an objective question, the importance of repetition in science, how and why to randomize variables, what observer biases are and how to correct for...
By the end of this course, learners will understand how to use critical thinking and hypothesis testing to solve problems. They will illustrate their understanding by completing and presenting an individual science project.
I have a doctorate degree in Biology; I have conducted many experiments, as well as mentored various students, throughout my research career.
Learners will be completing their individual projects between classes. The amount of time required to complete the homework varies: It may only take a couple minutes to think up a question and formulate their hypothesis one week, whereas it may take several hours to set up their experiment and collect data another week. Learners will receive a message from me after each class reminding them of their assignment each week.
Supplies needed will depend upon each individual learner's own science project.
Learners will present their projects during the final class. I will provide learners with the rubric used to assess their presentation. I will issue an informal assessment, accompanied by this rubric, at the completion of the course.
1 hour per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
