The scientific method requires observations of natural phenomena to formulate and test hypothesesIt consists of the following steps:[

  1. Ask a question about a natural phenomenon
  2. Make observations of the phenomenon
  3. Form a hypothesis to explain the phenomenon
  4. Predict logical, observable consequences of the hypothesis that have not yet been investigated
  5. Test the hypothesis’ predictions by an experimentobservational studyfield study, or simulation
  6. Draw a conclusion from data gathered in the experiment, or revise the hypothesis or form a new one and repeat the process
  7. Write a descriptive method of observation and the results or conclusions reached
  8. Have peers with experience researching the same phenomenon evaluate the results
