Keep working on  your project! Here is a short checklist for you. Remember, experiments rarely go exactly as you plan and thing need to be adjusted frequently, so do not procrastinate! And perhaps even more importantly: Write down everything! Write down everything! Write down EVERYTHING! 

Checklist for beginning your experiment:

  1. Write down your plan or method. 
  2. Gather your supplies and write down everything you can about them.
  3. Perform the experiment and write down everything.
  4. Record data as accurately as you can in your notebook.
