Step 5: Perform the Experiment Highlights

The fifth step of the science fair project is to perform the experiment. This phase is patterned after step four and five of the scientific method.

By this time in the science fair project, the students have completed their design and are now ready to perform their experiment.

This step may take several weeks depending on how long they have designed it to take.

The students need to:

  1. Get ready for their experiment by gathering and preparing the supplies.
  2. Run their experiment from start to finish using the plan they developed in the last step.
  3. Record their observations and results as the test progresses.

Now that the students have gathered their data, they are ready to analyze it to determine the answer to their question.
