Consider these thoughts:What is micro-gravity? Microgravity is when people / objects seem to be weightless . (witch micro means very small). Microgravity is a very weak form of gravity witch means you would be able to move things that weigh over hundreds of pounds just with there finger prints .
What are control and experimental groups? The experiment groups is the experiment that receives the variable being tested . The control group is the group that dose not receive treatment by the researchers and is used as a bench mark
What are ways to have our experiment win out? Some ways I found on how to make our experiment successful is to pick a exciting topic that will entertain my group and to challenge myself , and to try something new . Make sure after we picked our experiment we have spent a lot of time gathering background research , and trying out the experiment manny times to see our results and if they consists of a normal each time we do it or if its out of normal . .
Dream possibilities of experiments. List all the possibilities we brainstorm no matter how far-fetched they are.Document the process to be shared on our blogs through video.
Learn about our SSEP opportunity Our SSEP experiment reflects the creative approach to science education in my school district, with this experiment its teaching us to use life real science witch allows students like myself to use ownership in exploration, focused inquiry problem solving and critical thinking, and my team definition and of a proposed research program. More than 1,600 students in Grades 5 through 12 will collaborate in there own groups of 3-5 to design experiments and related written proposals that may be sent to the ISS. The winning proposal will be selected on December 15, 2016. This experiment if won would be part of the SSEP Mission 11 payload to the ISS, and is currently planned to launch on a SpaceX Falcon-9 rocket from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station in Florida.
Discover what kinds of experiments won in the past. Provided here is a big list of many young kids just like me who have won in the past . http://ssep.ncesse.org/communities/experiments-selected-for-flight/selected-experiments-on-ssep-mission-1-to-iss/
Share our experiments with the class and the SD43 review team .
Debrief the process asking questions such as: How did the process of completing this challenge go? What was done well? What could have been done better? My ssep experiment was a very good experience . I very much enjoyed how it was student based , I love being able to create my own experiments and doing something that Im interested in . At times it did get quite difficult being just your group but it was very much easy to work along with my group and figuring out the problems with your group and no teachers made you feel successful .
