Everyone (K-5th grade) is invited to participate! Presentations will not be judged, but all participants will have the opportunity to present their project to a mentor and enter into a raffle for a prize.

Registration is due by March 1st and must include a project title and description.

Students can create a project alone or as part of a group of 2 or 3 students. Students who register by February 18th will receive a free tri-fold presentation board (one per team).

Students: You will have the opportunity to present a traditional Science Fair project by conducting an experiment using the Scientific Method or a STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics) project. STEAM projects can use applied art integrated with traditional STEM, or any Science, Technology, Engineering, or Mathematics project. For example, STEAM projects can include creating a model (Fibonacci’s Sequence), a demonstration (Tornado in a Bottle), building something (a bridge), or a mathematical work of art (geometric).

Talk to your teacher and parents about topics that interest you. With your parents help, visit the library or search the internet for ideas to find a topic that interests you and determine what you will need to do to complete your project.

Once you select a project, start working! If you are experimenting, form a hypothesis, test it, record the results, and draw conclusions. Construct a model, illustrate an invention or demonstrate your STEAM concept in a creative way.

Display your project on a tri-fold board. They can be bought at any office supply or craft store.

***Please note: the above display is an example; your project may not match exactly***

(The research paper is not required)

Remember Safety First!

  • Matches, flames or flammable liquids are not allowed.

  • Messy projects must have a parent or guardian at the display at all times, with a roll of paper towels for any spills.

  • Projects involving electrical circuits and those requiring use of an electrical outlet, must have an adult present at all times.
