DIY (Do it Yourself) Lab Introduction (10 min)
The purpose of this project is to create your own scientific experiment to test an hypothesis of your own creation. It can be as simple or as complex as your choosing. The only requirement is that you follow the six steps of the scientific method and you follow the rubric (linked below). If you choose you may work in pairs, but each of you must have your own unique lab report and you must test different a different hypothesis. The only aspect of the report that can match will be your methods and data tables. It's also expected that if you are working in a pair your experiment will be larger in scope. See Mr. Korchnak before you start your experiment if you choose to work in pairs. This project will be completed using Google Docs and will be downloaded by Mr. Korchnak Monday September 9th at 5 pm.
- DIY Lab Rubric and Format Guide (This will also be shared with you as a google doc)
To start you'll create a Google Doc using the naming scheme below. Once you do that you need to share it with Mr. Korchnak. After you do this you may use the rest of class time to start your report.
