- Definition of research
Researching is an investigation to find things out and once we have found what we are looking for we should view it with an open mind and use this new knowledge to develop ourselves and the world around us. Research is often thought of as being scientific, however this is not always the case. It can be anything from a cookery recipe to a cure for cancer. Research can cover all areas of knowledge across the entire universe.
- Why we research
Research can require anything from reading a book to carrying out scientific experiments using specialist equipment and volunteers. Historical research will usually involve reading through textbooks, old newspapers, diaries or letters; and whenever possible talking to people who experienced that piece of history.
- How we research
As the experts and scientists make new discoveries we can guarantee that information will be on the internet within days and can be accessed freely by anyone.
