La démarche scientifique





CEA Outreach


To teach young audiences about the science process


This is a short video produced for young audiences to explain what steps scientists go through to make their discoveries. It models this process through telling the story of French scientist Becquerel and his experiments with uranium rays in 1896. The video begins with a brief introduction to the history of human learning, tells the story of Becquerel and concludes with a re-capitualtion of the 3 main stages in the scientific process: 1. Observation/defining the problem), 2. Hypothesis/Experimentation, 3. Results/concluding theory.
