Reflection: Modeling What Does a Scientist Look Like? - Section 2: Activity


With this activity I want my students to understand that science is more than mixing chemical. Unfortunately this view of science is partially my fault, on the first day of school I explode a container of isopropyl alcohol. I would love to do this activity at the end of the year to see how my student's perception of what a scientist is has changed.
