The Scientific Method - Drawing a Conclusion

Testing our hypotheses may lead allow us to draw a conclusion.

We've reached the final step of the scientific method. This is when a hypothesis is either accepted or rejected. If the conclusion means the hypothesis is rejected, then another hypothesis needs to be examined. If the hypothesis is accepted, then the explanation becomes a theory. In both cases, the conclusion should state all the findings so others can verify the results or explore some of the findings.
