The Scientific Method, Blood Typing, and Antibiotic Resistance
Young scholars are given some components of an experiment, where they are able to identify and fill in missing parts, such as hypothesis, conclusion, results, etc. They form a hypothesis given general scientific facts. Students apply the components of the scientific method and a lab report to one of the two labs run in class to prepare a poster as they would for a science fair.
