Sarah S,

To get started I suggest you read over the Abstract (i.e. Purpose) information found in the Project Guide section of the Science Buddies website.
http://www.sciencebuddies.org/mentoring/project_abstract.shtml

It will help you formulate your Abstract and provides a checklist so you know you are including all the information you need.

Regards,

Hey,

The purpose of your project states what your project sets out to accomplish. For example, in a project called "Which Battery Lasts The Longest," the purpose is to determine which battery lasts the longest out of a selected few. The purpose is short and is very similar to the title of your project

Hope I helped!
