Many students think of the scientific method as a step-by-step process that all scientists follow in order. But real research is rarely so neat and tidy…it is really more of a research cycle or spiral because things you learn in one step can change your ideas about what you’ve already done or about next steps.
It is OK to change your thinking! We encourage you to go back and edit things you write in this section at any time as your ideas change. Just remember to ADD to your entries (put new stuff at the top) and don’t delete or overwrite anything you or other students in your group have written.

|About this Project||
The students had a clear research question, made predictions and made a focused research effort. Their experiment worked nicely! Ducks29 had a clear goal: make a celery curl. They researched how they could achieve the goal and they made an experiment. And succeeded! I especially liked that they provided evidence by posting a picture of the curled celery, as real scientists do!
