A hypothesis is a statement that is meant to anticipate a potential outcome of an experiment. You can think of it as a prediction. Generally, scientists will structure their hypotheses using an “If/Then” format, to predict that IF “A” occurs, THEN “B” should follow as a result. 

Here is an example:

IF you invite me to your fancy wedding, 
THEN I will embarrass you when I stick nerf darts all over my body and shove a lightsaber up my nose.

The Independent Variable here is “inviting me to your wedding.”  And the Dependent (measured) Variable is “me embarrassing you.”
(Haven’t totally decided on a data measurement tool here.  Maybe we create an embarrassment Likert scale, or just return your embarrassment as a boolean value. Either way.)
