Without science, there wouldn't be Iron Man, Spider-man or a gang of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. (Haven't heard of the men in green? Ask your parents; they'll know.) And now you can be a bona fide scientist, too.
In sixth grade, you'll start using a school laboratory and conducting experiments using chemical compounds. There will be glass beakers, Bunsen burners and measuring droppers. And about the time it starts to feel like you're manning the crime lab in an episode of "CSI: NY," you'll discover something even better: the scientific process. During sixth grade, you'll take theory and hypothesis to a whole new level as you look for scientific answers.
