Hi kameron

I'm going to move your topic to physical sciences since it is related to chemistry.

To answer your question, yes, you do need to identify what the variables are in the experiment. You don't need to necessarily come up with new ones, unless you want to modify the project and test additional variables.

Read this page about variables and if you have questions after looking it over, reply to this topic and we will help you.
