*All right, there is no THE scientific method. It's just a way of thinking. You do it everyday with a million different things. Is the stove hot? Hmmm. Observe. Hypothesize (If i put my hand on the burner and it's hot, then I'll burn my hand because the heat transfers to my skin). Experiment (give it a try). Result? Well, after you peel the skin off be sure to let me know. :) All right...please don't try this on your own hand.
