California Academy of Sciences: Collect Data

Have you ever wondered how scientists answer questions about the world around them?

They gather data, which is a fancy way of describing observable facts, and then look to see if there are any patterns. It’s pretty amazing how much you can learn about something just by observing it regularly and keeping track of your observations over time. Give it a try! Ask a question, make some observations, and see if you can find an answer.
