The Scientific Method—Unveiled!

2 of 6

2. Develop a Hypothesis

The hypothesis is a statement that explains your expected results. ("I hypothesize that energy drinks give people who drink them more energy.") It's an educated guess of the answer to your proposed research question. Remember: Your hypothesis is only a guess; it will not always match up with your ultimate conclusion.
