Title for a science fair project
Does this question make sense? We are comparing the effectiveness of different detergents for a science fair project. We were wanting to use this as the title.
Which detergent will be emergent?
'Emergent' isn't the word you want. If you're try to determine which is the best, use the word 'best'.
Which detergent is best?
Rather than use a question in the title. I would describe what the project does.

On the other hand, a title can sometimes take poetic license. That means you use a pun or some other play on words. In this case, it is a word close to what you mean that creates a rhyme. For a science fair, I would recommend using both. The title can be shorter & bigger on the sign, to attract attention, and a more correct subtitle can go underneath. I would change the verb to "is" since emergent already indicates changing status.
