The answer to you questin is probably the most obvious ones!! If you are being judged at your school, for your own science fair then perhaps you should ask a class that had the science fair last year to gather some ideas what the judges at your school asked for. If it is a school fair sometimes and somewhat typically, the judges won't ask you any questions directly. They often will ome in after the projects are set up and review them all looking for completeness and if your project actually solved the questions or hypothesis, the method used and the various steps which were concluded in the project. In other words was it well thought out? Etc. In reginal Science Fairs which I participated in, the Science Fair Judges would ask you questions about your hypothese, and the methodolgy which you used to conduct your experiment etc. Was it complete etc. they also would ask you quetions about yourself and what you might be thinking about doing with your life in the future. They always were positive never negative. I hope that this helps you>
