Participating in the school science fair is a fantastic opportunity to uncover the power of the scientific method. You'll ask new questions, discover new science facts, conduct experiments that lead you to ask new questions and make new discoveries, and ultimately gain a new understanding of how science works. "Wondering" is an important part of any science lesson. Science education is more than just teaching the facts.
Got a hunch about something but don’t know how to prove it? In this BrainPOP movie, Tim and Moby will walk you through the steps of the scientific method, which can be used to design any kind of experiment! First, Tim will show you how to make observations and develop inferences based on them.
This is part one of what will be a two part series on the most influential scientists in history.

Be sure to tell us who you think should be on the future list – we already have our second ten, but it might lead to a third or fourth.
