1. Remember what Dick Norris told us earlier about being wrong: 8:39 (Norris) My experience is that I am almost always wrong, that the original idea I came up with is actually 8:45 not a very good explanation for the way nature really works. And, in many respects, I think 8:51 that that's the very best possible outcome, because if it turns out I'd been right to 8:56 begin with, I must not have asked a very interesting question. But because I'm wrong, and I'm discovering 9:02 how I'm wrong, and then also what the alternative explanations are, and eventually coming up 9:08 with what I believe is the correct answer, it is just terrifically more exciting to be 9:13 part of that kind of process. (Narrator)

2. 1:29 (Narrator) So the real scientific process is not a simple linear one. This diagram shows it can move 1:37 in many different directions. There is often a constant adjustment of knowledge and of 1:42 what the really interesting questions are.

Narrator basically summarizes everything up until this point and introduces the diagram

3. 1:09 (Norris, offscreen) All the time you're collecting information you're asking new questions. That's the key 1:14 part of science. It's not just one question and the answer, it's one question leading 1:19 to a bunch of other questions, leading to a bunch of other answers, which in turn eventually 1:24 lead you to a much more full understanding of the process.

Norris describes the "key part of science"

4. 0:02 (Narrator) Science, the art of learning about the natural world around us. It seems straight-foward, 0:08 you ask a question, you make a hypothesis about what you expect to find, then you perform 0:14 an experiment to see if the hypothesis is correct, you analyze the data, and determine 0:20 if you were right. Simple, right? Well, not really. There is much more to it than that, 0:27 which is what makes science so exciting. And fun! In fact, scientists often describe it 0:34 as a process that is all about exploring, asking questions, testing hypotheses, and 0:41 changing directions if their original ideas were wrong; all the while working and sharing 0:47 with other scientists, advancing what 0:50 we know 0:51 about the world 0:52 around us.

"Science [is] the art of learning about the natural world around us" (0:02). Unlike the linear process that often comes to mind, the scientific process constantly loops back onto itself and even entirely changes directions as more and more data is accumulated. This is what makes science so exciting, the discovery of information, the new questions prompted by such discoveries, and the interconnectedness of the science community which expands upon this process one hundred fold.

5. 0:53 (Dick Norris) My experience is that I am almost always wrong--that the original idea I came 1:00 up with is actually not a very good explanation for the way nature really works.

This is one of the few times where being wrong is actually pretty cool because you get to discover the correct answer which lets you develop even more appreciation for the world around you.

6. This video introduces the non-linear aspect of the scientific process and showcases it with the work of climate scientists that collect oceanic sediment cores.
