Mission Control Launches Video Series

The eCYBERMISSION Mission Control team launched a video series this competition year to help Team Advisors and students successfully complete their Mission Folders. Each instructive video walks students through the different steps of the scientific method.

Click here to view the the first Mission Control video on You Tube, that walks students through constructing an effective hypothesis.

After students select one of the four Mission Challenges; Health and Safety, Sports and Recreation, Environment, or the new Scenario Based Mission Challenge on renewable energy students are instructed to come up with a problem in their community they would like to help solve.

Rachael and Kristin, from eCYBERMISSION's Mission Control, walk students through different examples of how to write an effective hypothesis, and guide students to conduct research and brainstorm ideas with their teammates to come up with good ideas on ways to solve their Mission Challenge problem.

We give students suggestions on how to write the hypothesis as an if-then statement, how to use the independent and dependent variables, and how to make sure the hypothesis states the prediction and not the question.

Don’t forget to check out the video and the other eCYBERMISSION videos on our You Tube page and stay tuned for the next Mission Control video focused on conducting an experiment!
