Doubting & Accepting Mistakes is Part of Science

Here is an experience shared by cubists, who missed a crucial part in explaining his design of experiment of making a tomato medium, where he gave the list of requirements such as tomato, rava, sugar, etc, but missed to highlight the quantities of each. It was later pointed in CUBE discussions that amounts are missing in process described, this was a goof up which happens most of the time in students who are new to science. To recognize goof-ups is part of science. We need to celebrate Goof Ups.

We can do mistakes only when we attempt to do something, and only way to deal with mistakes in science is not to hide or defend them but to accept them and try to improve upon them, so that goof ups can be prevented from happening again.
