If you were once in a Sceince Fair, or know a LOT about science fair projects, do you mind telling me what you are suppose to put in the RESULTS section and the NEXT TIME section?

You should have had some hypothesis: "I think that *this* will happen if I do A and B, and C....
Doing A and B and C... is the experiment.
Well.... did *this* happen? after you did the experiment?
that's what you put in the results section. It doesn't matter if the experiment was sucessful, or not. If it wasn't sucessful, you say so. If it was sucessful, you say so.
If the experiment didn't give you the results you thought it would, then you have a lot to say in the "next time" section. Did the experiments go wrong? why? Did something unexpected happen? what? How could you make a better experiment next time that would prove your original hypothesis?
If the experiment DID go right and you got the results you wanted, the next time section should talk about how you might expand the experiment to add more stuff, to prove the hypothesis, better.

You can get the supplies at the grocery store or supermarket but they are probably already in your kitchen (except for the sand).
I suggest you use a null hypothesis, that there will be no difference in the melting time no matter which material (or none) gets added to the ice. This allows you to test your results statistically and show (as you suspect) that there will be a difference.
You seem to have a good grasp of what you are doing.
I've judged a few science fairs. The results section includes your basic results - what were you testing? What was the outcome? What can you conclude? How might your test have been influenced by something outside the test - have you included controls?
The 'next time' section would include any improvements you could make so that you're not being biased, anything else related that you want to test, how you might change your procedure/equipment.

Well look on science fairs you have to do an experiment alaways be sure to reasherch it and do it in the results you have to write down what and why did you experiment is doing this on the next time secition I'm not so sure but my guess is to keep the record of what material you used to do this and if your only basing the experiment on a famous scientist or is your own experiment
hope you understan My Email is [email protected]

results - if you performed an experiment, the results of the experiment should go in the RESULTS section. In the next time section, put what you would do next time to change the experiment,, put all alterations.

learn a thanks to do it correct, and imagine about it a lot earlier you initiate finding out. purchase a deck of uniformly man made playing cards extremely than print your man or woman. verify that the sender won't be able to provide different clues to the receiver. settle on even if you'll tell the receiver even if each and each and every answer is sweet or no longer, to work out if there is any getting to understand effect. keep ALL information. Do a thorough statistical diagnosis to demonstrate which ends are statistically substantial. demonstrate the outcomes graphically. be certain each and each and every card is drawn randomly from an complete, shuffled deck.

Hmm. The only way I can think of is to test the water that comes in the plastic water bottle, test the water that you are going to fill the plastic bottles with, do whatever you do to the bottles, refill them and then retest the water.
I would leave the water bottles in random places like the car, the refrigerator, in the sun, in the shade, etc. This could be done with or without the water in them. If there is no water in them be sure to let the water sit in the bottles for a while to absorb any inbalances that could be present. Just make sure that you leave all of the bottles somewhere for the same amount of time and repeat several times to increase validity. You can test with ph strips that you can find at a pet store. But I am not sure if that would find anything. I would think the best thing to test would be the plastic but I am really not sure of ways to do that with out some complicated equipment.
As an after thought, you could do multiple sets of the locations like test set one after one day, test set two after two days, and so on. Not sure if your allowed to do an experiment that complicated or not.
