I am not sure why this topic is chosen for the science exhibition for a seven year old.
Raman effect is a very high level concept, and I am not sure how a seven year old can grasp and answer questions regarding the same.
How will the terms like wavelength, change in wavelength, radiation, scattering, photons, molecules, spectroscopy etc. be understood by a seven year old.
My advice: select a simple scientific principle which the child can present as a project!
Project is supposed to be a learning experience, at the current intellectual level of the child.
