He was the inventor of the first videophone. A native of Lipa, Batangas, Zara finished primary schooling at Lipa Elementary School, where he graduated as valedictorian in 1918. In 1922, he again graduated valedictorian in Batangas High School, an accolade which warranted him a grant to study abroad. However the scholarship was given to another student upon the intervention of a public official. With full support from his parents he then enrolled at the University of the Philippines. In the middle of his first semester, he finally got the scholarship when his rival got sick and died abroad. Career and Contributions Dr. Zara was probably the most productive of Filipino inventors, with 30 devices and equipment patented to his name. Among these were the earth induction compass, used by pilots for direction; the vapor chamber, used to visualize radioactive elements; the wooden microscope; solar energy devices for areas not reached by power lines; a functional robot; the photo-phone, which allowed audiovisual phone conversations; a functional alcohol-fueled plane; wooden aircraft propellers; and a corresponding propeller cutting machine. He also has written numerous papers and textbooks in science and physics, with some even written in French.

An analysis is done to check whether the hypothesis is proved true.Communicating the results The results of the experiment and the hypothesis must be conveyed to others through a display board or by publishing a final report. Asking a question The scientific method begins when a question is asked using the words why or when or how or where or which or who or what regarding something that has been observed. The answer to the question must be something that can be measured and preferably a number. When others perform the same experiment and get same results. Two things must be kept in mind while stating a hypothesis. The experiment must be repeated for the same and different set of values to ensure that the initial results were not a fluke. it must be possible to measure the terms in the hypothesis 2. the alternative is to formulate a new hypothesis and begin the steps of the scientific method all over again. then __ this __ will take place". all the measured values are collected together. the hypothesis must answer the original question The hypothesis must be worded as follows: "If __ this is done __ . Testing the hypothesis by conducting an experiment The experiment that is performed proves the authenticity of the hypothesis. It comprises the following: y y y gathering observable. 6.Constructing a hypothesis A hypothesis means an educated surmise of how processes occur. then it becomes necessary to check it again by using a new approach. Performing background research It is not a good idea to begin from a scratch to answer the question. 1. Rather the library and Internet must be used to gather information and confirm that the past errors would not get repeated. . 4. acquire new information and correct or integrate previous knowledge.The Scientific Method This is a collection of techniques to investigate phenomena. It frequently happens that the hypothesis turns out to be false. 2. the hypothesis becomes rock solid. Then. Care must be taken that the experiment is a fair test. If the hypothesis turns out to be true. 3. Analyzing the data of the experiment to deduce a conclusion After the experiment is complete. As stated earlier. empirical and measurable proof as per certain principles of reasoning gathering data by observation and experimentation formulation and testing of hypotheses Steps: 1. one factor is altered during the experiment and all other factors are kept same. 5.
