Judges will be looking for: Technology • innovation • a cyclic approach to the project (design, modify, evaluate) • a view to the future (ie, product development) • Ownership Science • A well thought out method and conclusion that are related to the hypothesis • Solid data gathering and analysis of this data • A view to the future (ie, opportunity for further investigations) • Ownership Judges also like to see … • an authentic reason for a project, not just a copy of an experiment off the web.
