hi
Do you need the aim in your science report? I think my teacher said yes but this website didn't include it in its checklist.
Do I include it in my report? :?

Hello!

I recommend you include your aim. It doesn't have to be a separate section, necessarily. It can be rolled into your abstract / question / hypothesis sections (which are on the list on this website).

The more information you can provide on why you conducted your experiment, the better the reader will understand the purpose. When conducting an experiment, it is always important to answer the question "why?" Meaning, how will you, people in general, or the environment be better off by learning the outcome of your experiment.

I hope this helps. Certainly write back if you have more questions. Good luck!
