Communicate Your Results

Previous Lesson Lesson 5
Communicate Your Results
Return to Instructions

It is important to share what you have learned with others. Scientists often find solutions to problems by knowing the results of other scientists' experiments. Communicating your results is often the first step to clearly identifying a problem and beginning to think about possible solutions.

Describe Your Results
What did you learn after looking at all the data? What summary statement can you make describing what you found?

Possible Explanations
Can you think of anything that may explain your results? Are there any factors that might change your results? How might you go about confirming your results? What, if anything, should be done by you or others based on your findings?

Share Your Results
Think of ways you can share what you learned with others. Here are some possibilities:

  • Let members in your household know the results of your study.
  • Write a short report or make a poster describing what you learned and share it with your classmates.
  • Post your findings to the online Discussion area to share with participants from other parts of the country or world who are using this project.
  • Submit a short report or digital images describing what you learned for posting in the Student Gallery of this web site. (Click here for instructions how to do this.)
