Judges will ask lots of questions about your project. Dazzle them with your brilliance and be prepared to answer questions like these:

  • How did you come up with the idea for this project?
  • How long did it take you to build the apparatus?
  • How did you build the apparatus? How does it work?
  • How much time (or many days) did it take to run the experiments (grow the plants or collect each data point)?
  • How many times did you run the experiment with a different set of parameters?
  • Did you try something else that didn't work?
  • Can you explain to me how your project relates to (some scientific principle)?
  • Do you think there is an application in industry for this knowledge (technique)?
  • Were there any books that helped you do your analysis?
  • When did you start this project? Or how much of the work did you do this year?
  • What is the next experiment to do if you want to continue this study?
