What is a 'discrepant event'?
A scientific discrepant event is the result of an experiment that goes against what students expect to happen and thus provides an open-ended question to stimulate student thought. Discrepant events are an invitation to science inquiry, allowing students to view themselves as scientists in the process of learning. Students are immediately intrigued by what they have seen and become active, engaged participants.
