To review, there are four main sections of a Science Fair Project Abstract. They are the Objective or Goal, Method and Materials, Results, and finally Discussion and Conclusions. The complete abstract should be no longer than about 250 words. It should always be typed (or word processed). It is brief and to the point. Here is your review.
Objective or Goal: State the objective, goal,
purpose or hypothesis upon which the project is based. Example: My objective was to learn if
different fertilizers affect the tastes of tomatoes. When stated
as a question it would sound like this, " Do different fertilizers
affect the taste of tomatoes?". Stated as a hypothesis, the
statement would sound like this, "The use of different
fertilizers will have an affect on the taste of tomatoes."
