Let Mr. Wizard help you with your research strategy
Mr. Wizard knew how to take the most basic of experiments and turn them into science lessons that children could understand. How many budding scientists were inspired as kids by the amazing things they learned from Mr. Wizard? Now, as you try to explain your complicated R03 research plan in 1 page of specific aims and a 6 page research strategy section, take a lesson from Mr. Wizard. Even this brief, 4 minute lesson has been explained by some commenters as a lesson in global warming and climate change. In short, SIMPLIFY. Include the basics and enough detail to get your point across to the reader. Just look at how impactful this experiment was with nothing but ice, water, and a glass.
