Published on

A presentation to introduce scientific thought. This is NOT the scientific method, as students get drilled and killed with it when they are in the lower grades. This is inference, observation, predictions, modeling, journal articles, and oral defenses. You know, the more advanced stuff you always wish someone had taught you in school.
