Science Fair Project Your science fair project should be something you are interested in so that you will want to stick with it and investigate it until the end. The following need to be included in your project. 1. Question: Your question should be testable. You should not do a research project. You should have variables and controls. Remember to change only one variable that you are testing. 2. Hypothesis: This is what you think will happen during your experiment. This should be detailed, and it may not be the exact correct answer, and that’s ok. Remember this is what you think will happen. 3. Materials: List all the materials you use in your experiment so that someone else could copy your experiment. 4. Steps or Directions: Write the steps you took to do your experiment. Be sure not to forget anything. 5. Data: This is the information you gather. You will probably need a chart with your information. If you do a neat job as you gather your data you can add the original chart to your display. Your experiment may lend itself to making a graph. This can be created after your data has been collected. 6. Pictures: As they say pictures are worth a thousand words. You will need to include pictures of your experiment on your display board. 7. Results/Conclusion: What happened in your experiment? What did you learn in your experiment? Display Board You will need to display your project on a display board. You may purchase one from WalMart or you may use cardboard that you fold into a tri-fold board. Do not use poster board because it is too flimsy. Below is a suggestion for what you may want your display to look like. Use your imagination and be creative. Think aobut what will catch the judges attention.
