How to Test Your
Hi! Detective ThinkMore...
WOW! I am so excited. This is the reeeally fun
part of the
Do you know why? Because...
For every disciplined effort there is a multiple reward.
This is the heart of your investigation.
It is the action part. Read this before you take action.
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.
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.
· 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.
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.
Line "G" on your timeline
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.
Write your conclusion in your science fair experiment log.
