PODCAST: The Scientific Method: What does it mean to you?

Beth Linas
May 19, 2016

Most of us were introduced to the scientific method during our middle and high school days, but what does it really mean? How do different scientific disciplines use and interpret the scientific method? Host Beth Linas is joined by six current STPF fellows – Shobhana Gupta, Gabe Perez-Giz, Kristin Lewis, Claire Schulkey and Ariela Zycherman – to discuss the elusive definition of The Scientific Method.
