To make a statement of the problem in investigatory projects, come up with a detailed paragraph outlining the essential issue that you will be investigating. If your teacher wants a hypothesis, or educated guess, consider the problem, outline it in a paragraph, and then add your educated guess about what will happen in your investigation. The best hypothesis will be the result of research and logic. Once you've decided how to describe a problem in four sentences or so (use more paragraphs if needed) and create an educated guess, you will be ready to create an investigatory project you can be truly proud of. 

* Science project tips

The best science projects take time to put together; they never seemed rushed or sloppy. For example, if you're making diagrams or models to go along with your statement of the problem in investigatory projects, give yourself enough time to add sufficient details, colouring, and embellishments. Don't wait until the night before - you'll be surprised to find out just how long it takes to draw or create a model. Ask your teacher for an estimate of how many hours of work he or she expects on a project, and try to stick to these guidelines while you work. 

* The art of science

Great scientists combine art and vision when they work on science research and projects. Mimic the actions of the greatest scientists by thinking big and finding a way to make your project stand out. From working models, to video, to audio, to schematics...use your imagination, and create a project that is both artful and scientific. 

It's always possible to create a great project when you learn how to write the perfect opening statement and then follow up on that with excellent research, and a perfectly formatted and structured report that is impressive to your teacher.
