    I want to be a volcanolgoist so I have chosen to do the EPQ about volcanoes!
    Can anyone give me so ideas about a specific question??
    I don't really have any questions in mind, but try to make sure you don't make the question to vague or broad. You'll end up with far to much work to do. I did this, and it made the project a lot longer to complete. I still got a good grade, but I could've created a much more specific question, and really focused on one topic. However some people fell into a trap of creating far too specific questions, and there was hardly any research on it.

    So before you think of a question, and just say "yes I'm doing that one", maybe research a few different topics, and see what is out there. Form a question/hypothesis based on your research, and then research the question again, and see what you can find. If you can find 30 or more good, reliable sources then you'll be fine . And also search for books, magazines, journals, documentaries etc. Because you need loads of different types of research.
