The Scientific Method


All scientists follow a process that guides an experiment.
The scientific method guides you through your project by providing steps to follow.
Step 1 Choose your topic
What is the Question you are going to study?
This part is when you select your topic.
Step 2 - Research your topic.
Utilize the public library, school library, internet and other resources to gather
background information.
Step 3 - Plan your experiment

Create your step by step process to conduct the experiment.


Form a hypothesis.
Determine your variables.

Step 4 - Conduct the experiment.


This is when you will actually perform the test.
Step 5 Collect and Record Data.
Be sure to record all of your observations.

Use a data table to record the information you collect during the experiment.
Make tables, graphs, pie charts, etc.

Step 6 Analyze the Data


Explain the information you collected during the experiment in complete sentences.
Step 7 - State your Conclusions.
Explain what you learned from the experiment connecting back to your research. How
could your experiment be improved? List the questions you have as a result of the
experiment.
Step 8 Present your Findings
Design a display board with all the work you did before,
during, and after your experiment. Practice your presentation
in front of classmates before you present at science fair!

Date: ______________/ Page 4

Brainstorm:
This Science Fair journal should begin with these questions:
- What am I interested in?
- What questions do I want to know the answer to?
- What problems do I see in the world/home/school that I think need to be solved?
From your answers you should have a better idea of what you could possibly study for science fair. Do you
want to create a recycling or composting program for the school? Do you want to design a remote control
finder for your grandmother who always loses it? Are you interested in genetic inheritance? Are you
interested in plant growth or organic urban farming? Do you want to survey people about the amount of
time they spend on Facebook vs. doing homework? Do you want to challenge the lunch program and its
limited options?

- What am I interested in?


- What questions do I want to
know the answer to?
- What problems do I see in the
world/home/school that I think
need to be solved?

Science Fair Topic: Web Quest


This internet and library search should help you find some science fair project ideas
like will be fun and interesting. Science Fair Topics should be big and broad enough
that you can research the many parts and pieces of your topic. Ideas that are too small
limit your research possibilities. They also limit how interesting your project will be as
time goes on. Propose a topic that is uniquely interesting to you! Remember, Science
Fair scores are based on effort. Choose a topic you want to put your energy into.

____4. Your teacher will then comment on your ideas. You and your teacher will decide which of
your topics are appropriate for Middle School Science and strong enough to compete at Science
Fair.

Example Top Topic:

1. Topic Title:

Light up the Plants!

2. Scientific Question OR Engineering Need.


Science Topic
The effect of different colors of light on lima bean plant growth

3. How do you plan to TEST your idea?


I plan on growing lima bean seeds in a paper towel until they are about 2 inches tall.
Then I am going to plant them in pots with soil and put them in boxes with different colored light
bulbs sticking through the top (red, green, and blue).
Then I will watch the plants grow, watering them every day. I will measure how tall each of the
plants grows with a ruler everyday and record it in my Science Fair Journal.
4. What MATERIALS might you need to do this test?
20 Lima Beans, paper towels, 10-20 small pots, dirt, water, 4 boxes, light bulbs (red, green, and
blue), lamps, water, ruler, and electricity

your experiment

Conducting Your Experiment

Preparations
With your detailed experimental procedure in hand, you are almost ready
to start your science experiment. But before you begin there are still a few
more things to do:

Know what to do. Read and understand your experimental


procedure. Are all of the necessary steps written down? Do you have
any questions about how to do any of the steps?
Be prepared. Collect and organize all materials, supplies and
equipment you will need to do the experiment. Do you have all of
the materials you need? Are they handy and within reach of your
workspace?
Think ahead about safety! Are there any safety precautions you
should take? Will you need adult supervision? Will you need to wear gloves or protective eye gear?
Do you have long hair that needs to be pulled back out of your face? Will you need to be near a fire
extinguisher?

During the Experiment


It is very important to take very detailed notes as you conduct your experiments. In addition to your data,
record your observations as you perform the experiment. Write down any problems that occur, anything
you do that is different than planned, ideas that come to mind, or interesting occurrences. Be on the
lookout for the unexpected. Your observations will be useful when you analyze your data and draw
conclusions.
The data that you record now will be the basis for your science fair project final report and your
conclusions so capture everything in your laboratory notebook, including successes, failures, and
accidents.
If possible, take pictures of your experiment along the way, these will later help you explain what you did
and enhance your display for the science fair.
Remember to use numerical measurements as much as possible. If your experiment also has qualitative
data (not numerical), then take a photo or draw a picture of what happens.
Be as exact as possible about the way you conduct your experiment, especially in following your
experimental procedure, taking your measurements, and note taking. Failures and mistakes are part of the
learning process, so don't get discouraged if things do not go as planned the first time. You should have
built enough time in your schedule to allow you to repeat your test a couple of times.
In fact, it's a good idea to do a quick preliminary run of your experiment. Show your preliminary data to
your mentor or teacher, and make revisions to your experimental procedure if necessary. Often there are
glitches in the procedure that are not obvious until you actually perform your experiment--this is normal. If
you need to make changes in the procedure (which often happens), write down exactly the changes you
made.
Stay organized and be safe! Keep your workspace clean and organized as you conduct your experiment.
Keep your supplies within reach. Use protective gear and adult supervision as needed. Keep any
chemicals away from pets and younger brothers or sisters.

Plan Your Data Table:


Data Table
Prepare a data table to help you collect your data. A
data table will ensure that you are consistent in
recording your data and will make it easier to analyze
your results once you have finished your experiment.

Plan your data table below:


(Use a Ruler and refer to the checklists on page 24)

Collect your Data:

Date: ______________/ Page 22

How to Graph Your Data:


Graphs are an excellent way to display your
results. In fact, most good science fair projects
have at least one graph.
For any type of graph:

Every graph needs a Title!


The Effect of _______ on _______.

Place your independent variable on the


x-axis of your graph and the dependent variable on the y-axis.

Be sure to label the axes of your graph don't forget to include the units of measurement
(grams, centimeters, liters, etc.)

Make a Blank example of your Graph here:

For each result state a supporting fact(s) from the data.

For example: All coke cans with sugar sank in water. Classic Coke and Caffeine-Free coke have
sugar and they sank. All cans with Nutra-sweet floated. Diet coke and Caffeine-free diet coke have
nutra-sweet and they floated. Caffeine made no difference in whether cokes sank or floated.
Caffeine-free coke sank, but Diet Caffeine-free coke floated.
