Science Fair Guidelines

  • All entries should include a display board with: title, student name(s), teacher name and grade.
  • Entries can highlight a wide range of scientific themes including experiments, collections, hands-on activities, and projects which involve growing, making or designing something, answering questions, or making comparisons. The ideas are limitless!
  • If you choose to do a traditional scientific experiment you may want to apply the “scientific method” (see description below). Use of the scientific method is not required.
  • With the exception of insect collections, projects harmful to animals are prohibited. Live animals (such as mice, frogs, bugs or lizards) can only be displayed if kept in sealed containers.
  • Entries cannot involve the use of toxic, hazardous or flammable materials.
  • Please do NOT display fragile or valuable equipment that could get lost, stolen or damaged.  If you do not want people to touch your project, please include a “Do Not Touch” sign or use a sealed container.
  • For security reasons, computers will NOT be allowed and cannot be the format for display as projects are not monitored at all times. 
  • Please try to keep your project within the space of a standard tri-fold board as there will be many projects to display.
  • Parents – please watch small children while touring the fair so they do not damage the displays.

Display Tips

  • To make your display interesting, pick a catchy title, use photographs and pictures, be organized and use lots of color.  You may want to use the scientific method when conducting experiments, and consider organizing your display as follows:
    • Purpose/Question – state the purpose of the experiment (what are you trying to find out?)
    • Hypothesis – predict what you think will happen when you conduct the experiment
    • Materials – list the things that are needed to carry out the experiment
    • Procedure- describe the steps you must take to carry out the experiment (include photos and samples)
    • Results – present the information (data) that was collected during the experiment (what happened?)
    • Conclusion – explain what was proved or disproved through the experiment (how did the results compare to your prediction?)

Display Boards

  • A handful of black and green tri-fold display boards are available for $5. Contact the Science Fair Chairs for more information.

Display Drop Off and Set Up and Take down

  • Projects should be dropped off at the gym on Wednesday, March 20th between 4:00 – 6:00 PM.  If it is not possible for you to come at this time, please contact Jennifer and Lalitha. Each piece of the display must be labeled with the child’s name, grade and teacher’s name.
  • Please pick up your display (or arrange for it to be picked up) when the Fair ends at 8:00 PM on March 21st.  If you absolutely cannot pick up your display on the 21st, it will be stored in the Lost and Found area closet overnight.  Projects must be picked up by a parent or child at the gym by 9 AM Friday March 22nd.  Any projects not picked up by that time will be thrown out.
