Outrageous Acts of Science

You are a scientist in your life and in the real world. Part of the fun
of learning about the world and how it works is going beyond the text
and seeing it for yourself in action. This quarter you are studying 4
major fields of science: Physics, Chemistry, Earth Science, and
Astronomy. For two (2) of those fields, you will perform an experiment
and create a lab report. At the end of each chapter you are assigned to
read this quarter, there are “ACTIVITIES (HANDS-ON APPLICATION)” where
you can find your “experiment.” Don’t let this be the only place you
look! Venture to YouTube or the Science channel’s show “Outrageous Acts
of Science.” If you have always wanted to put Mentos in a bottle of Diet
Coke, this is the time! If you want an excuse to go camping or hiking,
star gazing, or doing a geological study, these might just be the way to
go. You could even make up one of your own! Include your family, your
friends, your pets. Have fun! Caution: Please make sure that you have
the proper safety equipment when conducting any experiment. This
generally includes, but is not limited to, eye protection in the form of
goggles or safety glasses and clothing that is not loose fitting. For
each lab report you must: 1. Describe the purpose and hypothesis of the
experiment. (What are you trying to prove or see?) 2. List/show the
materials used. 3. Describe the procedure. (Describe the steps of the
experiment and what you did so that a classmate could replicate these if
they wanted.) 4. Describe and display the results. (What happened?
Hint: Some of the data may be easier to show in charts or with
graphics.) 5. Answer the following explanatory and interpretative
questions: a. Why do you think you achieved the results that you did? b.
Did anything unexpected happen? c. Do the data/results support the
hypothesis? Why? (Demonstrate using specific references to the data.)
This Lab Report may be submitted in any format: Video, PowerPoint (with
notes pages as needed or screen captures as wanted), Word Document,
etc., or any combination that would allow you to show not only the
details of the experiment and data, but what you have learned from doing
it. Use your own words throughout. All assignments, regardless of
format, must give citations, references, and/or credit and use 2-3
academic quality sources. For example, if it’s not an original
experiment and you were inspired by someone else’s video, or copied it
exactly, let us know which one, etc. The important thing is that your
sources be documented clearly in a way that they can be checked by the
reader (and verified by the instructor). SWS style is recommended, but
not required.
