Lesson 1

1. Ask a Scientist. (Some questions will be done before I leave)

Many people think of scientists as very clever people who wander around in white coats doing mysterious things. We know that isn’t true because we have Mr Bruce and Mr Dave who don’t even won white coats. Scientists are human and most are a little bit weird. Some are very weird.

Everyone in the school has had a chance to ask some questions on the work. The 5-6 class has done some interview questions which I will ask. We should find out what they are like as people. Are they white coat scientists or Mr Dave type scientists or just plain weird like Mr Bruce.

On this expedition we have scientists from various occupations and I would like each class to design three questions for these scientists to find out what they are really like as people. I will conduct an interview and post it as a transcript. Your class has to come up with at least three questions that I can ask.
