My child has permission to participate in the 2018-2019 Science Fair. I understand that the Science Fair is completely voluntary for students in grades 1-5. Once registered, students will receive a Science Fair packet with information. Guidelines for project will vary by grade level. Student projects in grades 1-5 will not be part of the student's classroom grade, but may be considered for extra credit. Student progress will be monitored at school but will require supervision at home. *
Choose One: With the Science and Engineering Fair, students have the choice to conduct independent research that either uses the scientific method (Science Fair) or the engineering process (Engineering Fair). *

Science Fair Checklist *
 YesNo
Does your project fall into a behavioral science category?
Do you have human or animal subjects?
Can you find at least three (3) sources on your topic? One MUST be a book. No Wikipedia or Science buddies.
Is the topic challenging enough to work on for three months?
Is your experiment safe to perform?
Will you be able to obtain all the testing supplies and materials you need in time?
Can your realistically complete your project in time to allow you to analyze and present the data for the science fair?
Can you measure changes to important factors or variables using a number that represents quantity such as count, length, percentage, weight or the presence of a particular item in METRIC units?
Engineering Project Checklist *
 YesNo
Can you find at least three sources on your topic?
Is the prototype development challenging enough to work on for two months?
If 3D printing, will you have enough time to learn the software and design your prototype by early November?
Can you develop a testing/analyzing procedure to determine whether the prototype meets the need of the customer?
Can you quantify your data from the testing/analyzing procedures?
Will you have enough time to collect materials, construct and test your prototype by the middle of November?
Can you realistically complete your project in time to allow you to analyze and present the data for the engineering fair?
I have discussed my project idea and the checklist with my parent(s), and I am ready to commit and follow through on my science or engineering fair project. *
