  • All students must refrain from doing experiments which may be hazardous to themselves, others, or animals.
  • No bacterial growth projects will be allowed for grades K-8.
  • You can submit either a scientific project or an engineering project.
    • Scientific projects must follow the scientific method and test a hypothesis. No displays or demonstration projects, for example, no volcano demonstrations. No materials used in a scientific project will be allowed as part of the student display at the fair.
    • Engineering projects must identify a need or problem to be solved and design a solution that could take the form of a drawing, a model or prototype, or writing or using a program. The solution needs to be part of the student display at the fair.
  • Students may work by themselves or as a team of two (recommended) or three members. If students on the team are in different grade levels, the team will be placed in the highest grade level of the members.
