From the beginning of human history, natural phenomena have puzzled people and caused them to ask questions. Scientific Inquiry is about answering these questions through investigation. Scientific inquiry is not a precise set of procedure, but rather a broad approach to investigation that ranges from very open-ended to very controlled investigations. Scientific Inquiry begins with questions: “Why? What’s going on? How is this explained?” In this program, we will follow Sherlock Holmes-type investigations in the everyday and natural worlds, leading to some surprising and fun discoveries.
