Conclusion

Our hypothesis has been proven to be true. The higher the ceiling, the lower the room temperature.

Houses with low ceiling are suitable for colder climates because they help to keep the house warm, whereas  houses with higher ceilings are suitable for warmer climates because they provide better air ventilation and keep temperatures lower. However,  rooms with  higher ceiling will require  more powerful air conditioning compared to the lower ceiling rooms, as the volume of air in the room will be greater.

Also consider

What would happen if the science fair project were to be repeated using lamps of different wattage?

The science fair project can be also repeated by making the floor space of the box bigger or smaller.
