VFM 8th Grade Science Fair Project: Step 2: Formulate a Research Question & do a Project Proposal

State the Research Question

After you have selected a topic, review the information on www.sciencebuddies.org about “Your Science Fair Project Question”. 

http://www.sciencebuddies.org/science-fair-projects/project_question.shtml#yoursciencefairprojectquestion

What question are you trying to answer? The question should have an answer that is NOT a generally understood concept.  The question should be able to be answered through observation and experimentation. You are not doing a factual report that tells about a specific concept. The student must have an idea that can and will be tested in an experiment the student performs.
