This powerpoint would work best for an older audience (upper elementary-middle school).  I like the incorporation of a video from youtube and a rap song to help explain the scientific process and reach different learning styles.  The overall design of the StAIR was very appealing and easy to use.

Technical Remarks:

This StAIR can only be accessed if you are able to login to Netfiles.  The link needs to be changed.
