Science Fair Options
There are two ways to participate in the Science Fair:
Option #1: Science Project
This option requires students to use the scientific method to answer a question they are curious about and create a trifold board to illustrate their process and findings. Projects are required to use the Scientific Method and Science Fair Project Format. Additionally, projects must follow the International Science and Engineering Fair Rules and Regulations. Projects will be judged according to the ISEF Rubrics.
First, second and third place winners will have the opportunity to advance to The Region VII State Science Fair held at The University of Mississippi on March 2, 2020.
First, second and third place winners will also receive award ribbons and have their photo taken for the newspaper.
Option #2: Science Poster, Model, or Collection
This option is for our youngest children who are curious about a science topic that they want to learn more about. The child will research a topic, create an informative poster on the topic, and then include a model or collection to accompany the display. This option must adhere to the same regulations of the regular science fair, but will not require the use of the Scientific Method, as it is not an experiment. It will NOT be eligible to move on to the Regional Science Fair competition at The University of Mississippi on March 2.
