A Tale of Research: A Novice Exploring the World of Scientific Research

Have you ever wondered how we can trust the knowledge and science that we read in books or online? How can we get to know something for ourselves besides what others say in their scientific writings? Do you know how to do a scientific research to obtain knowledge for yourself? Familiarising students with the basics of research methods can have a great role in their learning. They will learn that they can find answers to many problems of everyday life with research. The young generations should not easily ignore their observations because observation is the basis of getting information, and information is the basis of rational decision-making. They must understand that ‘absence of evidence is not the evidence of absence’. This story seeks to explain scientific research to young adults with the style of theatrical plays. It explains the basis of scientific research methods and how to do a research in a very simple and clear language. It is about a family with an educated mother. She tries to help her children in discovering the world of research and guides them in their path to become capable to acquire original knowledge for themselves. It is a new way of addressing science with art and literature. We hope you enjoy reading it while discovering the world of research!
