TEACHERS, MENTORS, & PARENTS
“TEACHER” registration is the portal for every adult sponsor of a science fair student, whether you are a classroom teacher, parent, youth leader, or other mentors. The fair simply requires one adult who takes the responsibility of tracking the student’s registration and safety procedures.
The sponsoring adults only need to provide their name, school, email and phone number to register. Please note that our students’ schools are required for the fair’s international reporting, so you do need to identify that school even if the project is not done there or the student is homeschooled.
***All RED students should download the required safety paperwork before they start experimenting or building. Their work needs to be approved and signed by the required adults!
If you have questions, email the Science Fair Director.
Topic Presentation: These students simply prepare a poster and report. They collect NO data, or make nothing more than a simple model.
Research / Engineering Design: A student’s RED project will involve collecting data and recording the results in a bound lab notebook. S/he will (1) run an experiment, collect data and analyze results, or (2) make continuous improvements while, for example, building a machine or designing software.
Safety Paperwork: There is paperwork required for every project submitted to the science fair. Topic Presenters and middle school students need to complete a two-page form. High school RED students must submit “SRC forms” to the Scientific Review Committee. They can complete their paperwork for e-signature, or download it for hard-copy signature.
