**Step 4: Design an Experiment Highlights**
The fourth step of the science fair project is to design an experiment. This stage is patterned after step four of the scientific method.
At this point in the science fair project, the students have a chosen a topic, done some research and formulated their hypotheses. Now, they are ready to design their experiment.
The students may find this step to be a bit challenging, but a well-planned experiment design will yield reliable results.So, it is important that you take the time to walk the students through this process.
The students need to:
>Brainstorm for possible ways to test their hypotheses and choose one of those methods for their experiment.
>Determine their variables.
>Plan their experiment around one of those methods of testing.
>Review their hypotheses to make sure that their experiment design will prove their statement true or false.
Once they have a design in place, the students are ready to perform their experiment, which is the next step!
