Writing up the Experiments
Watch a video to see how to write up an Experiment.
Think of the writeup as instructions that you would give someone else if you wanted them to do the same experiment – what do you need to tell them? It should be short with just enough information to get the message across.
Equipment and Materials: This is a list of anything that you need to do the experiment – for example
“a glass of water”, “scissors”, “sugar”
Method: This is the steps you need to take – like a recipe for cooking something
Results: Here you write down your measurements and what you see.
You may use a table for your measurements
Or a graph
Conclusion: Here you say what your experiment told you. For example:
I measured the speed of a toy car
I showed that water moves up the stem of a plant
