POPCORN EXPERIMENT
PROBLEM
Finding out which of the three popcorn's will have the least amount of kernels left after popping them.
HYPOTHESIS
I think popcorn number 1 will have the least amount of kernels left after being popped, because it is the name brand and cost the most.
Conclusion
PROCEDURE
1. Get the three different popcorn's.
2. Set out the six bowls.
3. Microwave each popcorn for 2 minutes.
4. Let them cool.
5. Separate the popcorn from the kernels.
6. Count the unpopped kernels.
7. Repeat twice for accuracy.

DATA
MATERIALS
Microwave
6 Bowls
3 Different popcorn brands
ABSTRACT

For my science fair project i chose three brands of popcorn and wanted to find out which one would have the least amount of kernels left over after they were popped. So what i did was i went to the store and got the popcorn and when i got them home i popped each bag for two minutes in the microwave. After i let them i cool off i then i seperated the popcorn from each bag into bowls and the kernels of each kind into seperate bowls. i repeated the process two more times to find out on average the second brand of popcorn had the least amount of kernels after being popped. The name brand that most people buy actually had the most kernels left over after being popped in each trial, thus proving my hypothesis to be incorrect.
