Registration Due February 20, 2019 3:15pm
A separate registration is needed for each project.
All SSKY Students are encouraged to participate in the 2019 Science Fair, but participation is not required to enjoy the projects at STEM NIGHT!
DEADLINES K-6th graders, please fill out this form by February 20th 3:15pm Arizona Time. A project entry fee of $5 (five dollars) is also required to reserve your space. DO NOT REGISTER LATE!
Unless otherwise directed by your teacher, all K-6TH will bring completed projects to the library on February 27th before school. All projects may be taken home after STEMNight.
GROUPS – We recognize that science is a collaboration and that many Sonoran Sky teachers have allowed pairs of students to work together on science fair projects. If you and your partner would like to enter the Science Fair, please do so! Include the second child’s name and contact info in the description section. Partners must be in the same grade level. Partners will be judged using the same rubrik and given the same amount of time to present as individual projects.
PARENTS – Encourage your child to lead the project and do as much of the work as possible by themselves. When your child works on a science project, she is putting the scientific method into action and learning more about how to actively understand the world around her. Younger students will need more guidance and direction. Older students should be able to complete their projects with minimal adult assistance. Following the honor system, our judges will assume that work presented for judging is the work of the student, with only necessary assistance from adults. The following guidelines can help you support your child during the process.
FINAL NOTE REGARDING JUDGING – Students will be judged by a group of judges using the provided rubric provided. 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place will be determined based on total scores from all participating judges. Individual judges’ score sheets and final scores will not be shared with students or their parents. 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place will be announced at STEMNight. All judges’ decisions are final.
