The Problem (Write out the question that you are testing. ) To write a good Scientific Question: 1) Identify your independent variable (the one thing that you will change) and dependent variable (result of what you changed). 2) Use these in writing your question. For example: What affect does (independent variable) have on (dependent variable)? or How will (independent variable) affect (dependent variable)?

The Background Information List the important facts from your research. It should take you two slides to complete. Each slide should have 4 -5 important facts from your research report.

The Background Information Continuation of background facts. Remember there should be 4 -5 facts on this slide, too.

Hypothesis or Engineering Goal Directions to writing a hypothesis: replace with yours. A Hypothesis is written like this: "If _____[this is done] _____, then _____[this]_____ will happen. " (Fill in the blanks with the appropriate information from your own experiment. ) Again if you identify your Independent and dependent variables writing a hypothesis is easier. "If____(Independent variable)____, then ___(Dependent Variable)____. “

Hypothesis or Engineering Goal continued Directions to writing an engineering goal: replace with yours. Reminder: An engineering goal in a science project is a requirement that the student demonstrates a real-world problem that could be solved as a result of his/her project. Example engineering goal: I will design a solar oven that will heat a hotdog to an internal temperature of 145 degrees fahrenheit.

The Materials Create a detailed list of all the materials you need for your experiment. This slide has been divided up into two columns You can use more than one slide if you need to. You may change the layout to suit your needs. Remember to include quantities.

The Variables Independent Variable (The experimental variable – the one factor that you change. There is only one independent variable. ) Dependent Variable (The factor that changes because of the independent variable, the responding variable. ) : Constants(controlled variables)- All factors that cannot change that could influence the dependent variable. If these changed it could spoil the results Control Group- This is the one group that is used to compare to the other groups, the control group reflects “normal” conditions. *Note: Most engineering projects will not have a control group or other variables.

The Procedures This part of the Power. Point may take up to 3 slides. Detailed procedures are extremely important. Be sure if you choose to add columns in your layout that it is easy to follow for the viewer.

How to create graphs in Google slides You next few slides will require you to use data from your experiment and organize them into visual graphs. Here are some resources on how to do that: How to create a graph in google slides: https: //www. youtube. com/watch? v=KODIRHQwsv 4 You can also go back to the Science Fair logbook setup instructions presentation for additional assistance. Delete this slide from your presentation, it is only for assistance.

Qualitative Data Change the layout to meet your needs. (You may want a table, chart, or columns. ) You should have detailed observations in this section. Remember: qualitative observation use the senses and descriptive words (adjectives).

Quantitative Data Change the layout to meet your needs. (You may want a table, chart, or columns. ) Remember: quantitative observation are measurements and counts.

Graphed Results Create a graph to represent the data in your data table from the previous Make sure to include all necessary label and parts of a graph. Include the units of measurement (volts, centimeters, grams, Celsius). Place your independent variable on the x-axis of your graph and the dependent variable on the y-axis.

Results (Analyze Data) Calculate measures of central tendencies for the different trials of your experiment. Calculate the mean – average Calculate the mode - data that occurs most often Calculate the median - the middle value when placed in order from low to high Show these here and state what these say about your results. Talk about the data here. What did you find? Need help with this? Watch these videos. Video: https: //www. youtube. com/watch? v=DVrbm.

Conclusion Describe in 1 -2 slides what you discovered by conducting this experiment. Did your results support or refute (not supported) your hypothesis? Use your data to explain why your hypothesis is supported or refuted (not supported). Need assistance with this? Watch this video Video: https: //www. youtube. com/watch? v=6 d. CT_x. C 1 qp. M

Sources List all of the sources from where you found you project information. Write in MLA format. These websites will help you to format your sources properly. https: //www. sciencebuddies. org/science-fair-projects/sciencefair/writing-a-bibliography-mla-format? vm=r https: //style. mla. org/

Acknowledgements List here all the people, companies, etc that you would like to acknowledge/thank.

Reminders!!! Please remember to go back and delete out any slides, links from websites, videos, etc. from your presentation before submitting. Ask for help early, do not wait until the last minute before seeking help. Use the resources you are given.
