This notesheet is the companion to The Scientific Lesson in Action: The case of the Bitter Brassicas PowerPoint. It uses a real-life example of scientific inquiry to explore the steps of the scientific method. Dr. Paul Breslin\\\'s research into the genetic basis of children\\\'s dislike of vegetables not only highlights the scientific method, but engages students, who are eager to learn an argument for NOT eating their veggies. The presence of Breslin\\\'s Bitter Taste Gene can be tested by using PTC test strips, which is a great extension activity.
