Scientific Inquiry

I will be doing a presentation on scientific inquiry next week and I thought about the Thomas Dolby song from the 1980s - She Blinded Me With Science. Low and behold, the Muppets took on this song in a bizarre rendition. I write this post within the first phase of thinking about how science matters to a writing instructor. We are curious beings and YouTube makes inquiry rather easy. We have a hypothesis and we have to set out a plan of action to prove whether or not we can find proof for our notions. Through exploration, reading, experience, journaling, probing, viewing, and reflecting - not to mention testing of our hypothesis, we come to a result. The Muppets. That's my answer and it's probably wrong.
