Registration Steps:

  1. Read the documents on theGuidelines and Resources” page.  Make sure you look at the rubric and guidelines!
  2. Plan out your project.  Write a testable question and a procedure – and then check in with your teacher to make sure that your project is scientific, safe, and well-planned.
  3. If your project is going to include humans/vertebrates/bacteria, please fill out this form first.  This will send your project idea to the Science Fair team to make sure all humans/animals will be safe.
  4. Once you receive the okay (or if your project does NOT include humans/animals/bacteria), please fill out this form by January 31st, 2020.
