Science Investigatory Project or SIP is a well know project on science. It is like Science Fair. You will have to make an experiment and present it in Science Fair. Others say, it is just making an experiment but actually there are a lot of procedures. This article will tell you the steps in making a SIP. Steps
Get an idea. All of the following steps will base on your idea. Make sure it doesn't break any rule or else you might get disqualified. You can search for it if you don't have any idea.
2Form a title. Usually titles are in a form of a question. This are examples. The question can start in how, does and many other.Does temperature affect the growth of molds?Does salt affect the density of water? 3Research your idea. You have to know your idea more. You can do this by reading, surfing the Internet or discussing it. Knowing your idea more will help you construct your work. 4Form a hypothesis. Hypothesis will be your prediction in the idea that you choose. You don't need to research for this. You just have to guess. Make sure it is accurate and clear. 5Plan your experiment. Your experiment will confirm your hypothesis. Make sure the experiment will answers or really confirms the hypothesis. 6Plan your materials. You will need on your experiment. Make sure they are easy to buy and cheap. As much as possible, plan materials that is already in your house. 7Test your experiment. Use the steps that you have planed. If all else fails try a different step or a different material. If you really want to win the science fair, this will be a big step for you. 8Observe the result. Sometimes it is in a form of a graph but it depends on your work. You can write it in a journal so you can review it. 9Have a conclusion. Now that you have confirmed your hypothesis, it's time to write a conclusion. You can answer the question in your title. You may also tell if your hypothesis is correct or not. Again, make sure it is accurate and clear.http://science.wonderhowto.com/how-to/best-investigatory-projects-science-16-fun-easy-ideas-kickstart-your-project-0147689/ REQUIREMENTS FOR THE INVESTIGATORY PROJECTS
