Do you need a hypothesis?

AFTER you've done your research and concluded your experiments, it is time to prepare for the science fair. Ask specific questions about preparing for a science fair, including how to set up your display board, how to prepare a presentation, etc. (Please post questions about selecting a project or conducting your experiment by posting in the appropriate "area of science" forum.)

Do you need a hypothesis?

Postby prompter » Sat Feb 09, 2013 4:22 pm

My project is on Diabetes. And I have no experiment. I only did research and a survey and interview. Do I need a hypothesis, materials list, and procedure on my display board? What am I supposed to replace those 3 categories with? Like purpose instead of hypothesis? My science fair doesn't have an experiemnt.

Purpose

Hi - You may need to check with your teacher to see what is expected to be on the board. Our Project Display Board resource appears here: http://www.sciencebuddies.org/science-f ... oard.shtml

The checklist covers the parts of a display board that are typical when a project has been done following the scientific method. You will want to change your board to use the categories that make the most sense based on your assignment and topic.

I see that you have posted a number of questions all in different topics. For future queries, we need to ask that you post all of your questions together in one topic so that an Expert can best assist.
