Perform & Record

Try out your idea and see what happens

Get messy and dive into your project! This is where you test your discovery or innovation plans.

Once you have an idea, you need to figure out how you will find your answers. Plan testing that will answer your questions, conduct the testing in a safe and ethical way, and record your results!

  • Is your idea safe and ethical?
  • How will you control the variables?
  • What materials will you use?
  • Is your testing plan supported by your background research?
  • What is your experiment or design process?
  • How will you design and test your solution or prototype?
  • How will you collect your data?
  • How many samples will you need to test?
