Campbellsville High School students recently designed their own science experiments, and then conducted them.
In Lauren Bennett’s class, AP biology students are studying how to write experiments.
She asked her students to write an experiment using a capsule critter, which will expand when placed in certain types of liquids.
Students designed their experiments using various liquids and other variables, including vinegar, bleach, water, soda, lemon juice, salt, rubbing alcohol and more.
Bennett asked her students to identify their dependent and independent variables, and to write detailed procedures for their experiment.
And, in the end, they were asked whether their hypothesis came true.
