This video is intended to give you ideas on how to pose testable questions for a science fair project such as growing sugar crystals. For practical purposes during filming, the step of boiling the sugar-water was omitted. To make sugar crystals, you will need to boil the water as you add sugar to fully dissolve the sugar. Do so only under adult supervision.

Variables
