Question need help with hypothesis for lightning detection science project

my son wants to build the lightning detector for his science fair project. the only problem is, its more of a project than a science fair entry. i don't know what the hypothesis would be. I suppose it could be "can you detect a lightning storm before it hits?" any suggestions?

well im in 9th grade i dont know much, but ive learned that you can see how far away it is between thunder roars. Simply listen for it, after its done cout 1 1thousand, 2 2 thousand, 3 3 thousand and so on. when it strikes stop. Mutliply the number by 100 or 10 idk youll have to look that up. so if its 4 sec. it will be either 40 or 400 miles a way.
