Step 3: Formulate a Hypothesis Highlights

The third step of the science fair project is to formulate a hypothesis. This phase is patterned after step three of the scientific method.

A hypothesis is normally simple “if-then” statement that is no more than one sentence long.

Your students are ready to make a hypothesis, or educated guess, about the answer to their question. This step will be relatively easy because the students have been well prepared.

The students need to:

  1. Review all of their research and their question.
  2. Formulate an answer to their project’s question.
