Well done for completing this four-week course on understanding experiments! Over the past four weeks you’ve looked at:

  • the process of osmosis how density changes between liquid and solid states of household substances
  • how aerobic and anaerobic respiration works in yeast
  • how to extract DNA from fruit using equipment you find in your kitchen
  • the importance of keeping a scientific journal.

We’ve created an area on OpenLearn [Tip: hold Ctrl and click a link to open it in a new tab. (Hide tip)]  allowing you to take your study of experiments in science further.

Now you've completed the course we would again appreciate a few minutes of your time to tell us a bit about your experience of studying it and what you plan to do next. We will use this information to provide better online experiences for all our learners and to share our findings with others. If you’d like to help, please fill in this optional survey.
