Step 2B: Research your questions

Go to the library or Internet to learn more about your topic. Always ask Why? or What if? Review the information you’ve gathered so far to identify other resources you could look at to explore your topic further. Look for unexplained or unexpected results in other’s experiments. If possible, talk to professionals in the field.

If you are thinking of refining a past project for this year’s Science Fair, make sure you are able to document how the additional research is new and different from prior work.
