VFM 8th Grade Science Fair Project: Step 7: Form a Hypothesis

Form a Hypothesis

A hypothesis is a statement that predicts the outcome of your experiment, based on what you already know, and proposes an explanation that can be tested. What do you think the answer to your research question will be? Remember, hypothesis don’t need to be correct – they just need to be informed guesses!

Do Not go back and change your hypothesis once your experiment is complete. You should learn something whether your hypothesis is proven or disproven! If you have researched the topic of your project, then your research should help you make a good hypothesis. Hypotheses are often written using an “If…, then…, because…” format.
