Science + Art Fair

We are excited to bring you this great combo again this year. This year’s fair will showcase the amazing talents of our students in both areas of art and science. Students grades K-6th grade are invited to participate.

Never participated before? Here’s how it works:

Students are asked to submit their ideas via the entry application. Students may pair up this year within the same grade in groups of two to complete their project. A committee will review each application and send confirmation once your project has been approved.

Participants will receive a packet of information with detailed instructions on how to proceed with their projects. The packet is very thorough and will guide you through the steps you should take. If you are curious what you’re getting yourself into, click here to review the information packet for a science or art project.

Science fair participants will be supplied with presentation boards to display their findings and art fair participants will be provided with paper stock if they are presenting a 2D project. Please note, art fair projects are due BEFORE the show date, see below.
