This lesson is designed to help students better understand the nature of science. It uses simple, readily available mini-mystery boxes to model how scientists study things they cannot see. Scientists often study things that cannot be seen - either because they are incredibly small (inside cells/atoms) or too far away (other galaxies). In such work, scientists must rely on indirect information. Mystery boxes - each with a small steel ball and a raised terrain inside - demonstrate this aspect of science to participants. The students will draw a model and discuss in groups what they think the box looks like inside.
