Identify a research problem

A scientific question usually starts with: How, What, When, Who, Which, Why, or Where. Here are some characteristics of a good science fair project question:

  • The question should be interesting enough to read about, then work on for the next few weeks.

  • There should be at least three sources of written information on the subject. You want to be able to build on the experience of others!

  • The question should contain one factor (variable) that you can change in your experiment and at least one factor (variable) that you can measure.
