A conclusion is a summary of the results of the project experiment and a statement of how the results relate to the hypothesis. Following is a sample conclusion.
As stated in my hypothesis, moths are more attracted to white light than to yellow light. The experiment data collected over a period of 90 minutes every night for 4 days showed that more moths fly around a white light than a yellow light. This data supported my hypothesis and indicated that using a yellow light bulb as an outdoor light will limit the number of moths found in an area where a light is on.
An abstract is a brief overview of the project. It should be no more than one page long and a maximum of 250 words. It includes the title “Abstract,” a project title, a statement of purpose, a hypothesis, a brief summary of your experiment procedure, data, and conclusion. Make sure all the words are spelled correctly. The abstract is generally required to be part of the display. This gives judges something to refer to when making final decisions. The abstract is a very important representation of your project, so be sure to do a thorough job on this part of your project summary. Following is a sample abstract.
The purpose of this project is to determine if moths are more attracted to white light more than to yellow light. The hypothesis was that since moths use the white light because they mistake it for moonlight. The project experiment involved recording the number of moths near a white and a yellow light. This was done by testing each light separately. After each light was on for 30 minutes, moths near the lights were counted during a 2-minute observation period. The control had no light. The number of moths near the lights and without light were compared.
The number of moths near the white light was much greater than near the yellow light or the area without light. This result confirmed that moths are more attracted to white light than to yellow light.
