need a hypothosis

Postby bgood » Fri Nov 16, 2007 1:23 am

I'm doing an experiment on how different types of disposable cups degrade when buried under ground, but I can't come up with a hypothosis. Can you help me?

Hi bgood,

What a great topic! It's totally relevant and important for us to understand the environmental effects of disposable items like cups.

Have you taken a look at the Project Guide? This would probably be pretty helpful to you in developing your hypothesis:

Do you have predictions for what you would see, based on background research that you've done about degradation of disposable cups?

Your topic sounds very similar to this topic:
http://www.sciencebuddies.org/mentoring/project_ideas/EnvSci_p010.shtml

Take a look at these materials, do a bit of research, and if you come up with a hypothesis but are unsure about it, feel free to post again and ask us!
