Hi,

Here's some great information on formulating a question for a science fair: http://www.sciencebuddies.org/science-f ... tion.shtml. Generally, though, people do well when they have simple, straightforward problem statements like 'What is the effect of changing [independent variable] on [dependent variable]?' However, you should pay attention to the materials your teacher has given you, because your teacher/science fair might be looking for something slightly different.
