In my science fair report, it says I have to include background information. What does that mean?

That is the underlying science that you are basing your science experiment on and a summary of practical steps you took to set-up and carry out your experiment.

For example, I did a science project on springs in grade school and would write for the background section, a simple review of Newton's laws and the practical steps required to step my experiment.

Good luck. :D
