Discover How-To Test Your Science Fair Experiment Hypothesis
A vital step in doing science fair projects.

How to Test Your Science Fair Experiment Hypothesisto determine if the experiment solves the problem.

Hi! Detective ThinkMore...
I don't know about you, but I have been waiting for this day.

WOW! I am so excited. This is the reeeally fun part of the
investigation!

Do you know why? Because...
For every disciplined effort there is a multiple reward.

-- Jim Rohn

CLUE No. 4, Part D

Phase 4 of the Scientific Method
This phase will take up to one month to complete.
Line "H" on timeline.

THE SCIENTIFIC METHOD
1. Science Fair Project and Research: Project Research - Part 1
Project Research - Part 2 on the High School Science Fair Projects page
2. The Big Question
3. Science Experiments for Kids Hypothesis

#4, 5, 6 are on the same page...
4. Test Hypothesis
5. Interpret and Record Data
6. Draw Conclusions

This is the heart of your investigation.
It is the action part. Read this before you take action.

1. Every day keep very careful records of what you do, see, and hear in your Science Projects Log. Date each entry.

2. Establish the variables important to your experiment. Variables are the things that have an effect on the experiment.

• The experimental variable is the one condition that you change in the experiment. It is the factor that you are comparing or testing.

Ask yourself: What are the things that may affect the results of my experiment? Choose one variable to change and keep the others the same.

• The controlled variables are the conditions that need to remain the same during the experiment so that they do not affect the results.

Example "A"
Controlled variables: You have the same kind and number of kittens that are the same age and weight. They are fed the same measured amount and brand of food. Weigh each cat and put it on a chart.

· Experimental variable: One group is fed the food from the can while the other group's food is microwaved before it is given to the cats. At the end of 2 weeks measure the weight of each cat.

IMPORTANT

DO NOT DO THIS EXPERIMENT. This experiment was done in England by a professional lab and all the kittens died who ate the micro-waved food.

***************

Example "B"
· Controlled variables: Take a package of sunflower seeds. Use two containers that are the same size with the same kind of potting soil. Have them exposed to the same amount of light and air. Plant half the package of seeds in one pot. Space them equal distance as you did with the seeds in the other container. Water with equal amounts of water.

· Experimental Variable: Feed one set of seeds with fertilizer. Do not feed the seeds in the second container. Which seeds germinate the fastest?

If you have time repeat the science fair experiment a couple of times.

Well, we will not see each other for some time. While you are doing your science fair experiment, I'm going on vacation. Remember to bookmark this page in your favorites so we can meet up again after you complete your science fair project ideas experiment. Signing off for now, your sidekick, Dectective ThinkMore.

 Clue No. 4, Part E SCIENCE FAIR EXPERIMENT INTERPRET AND RECORD DATA Phase 5 of the Scientific Method This section will take - 1/2 hour - 2 hours to complete. Letter "G" on the timeline.

Hi! Welcome back. Congratulations! You have completed the research and experiment phase of your science fair experiment.

Record the data obtained from the science fair experiment. Organize the results of your experiment on easy-to-read tables and / or graphs to express the results of your data. These can be drawn on graph paper or on your computer.

Remember to record and keep everything in your Science Log.

This phase will take up to 3 hours to complete.

In your Science Log , using your notes, charts and graphs, analyze what happened in the science fair experiment.

Did your hypothesis hold up? Do your results agree with your hypothesis? What happened? State what the investigation showed. Accept or reject your hypothesis. You may also include other explanations, such as conditions that you were not able to control that may have affected the results.

It's OK if your hypothesis does not agree with the results. This is part of the scientific process.
