Please note, while we are following State guidelines, we have been informed that the ASU Elementary Science Fair has been canceled for this year. Before you start your project for our school Science Fair, please carefully read the science fair information packet on tips for a winning project and the scoring guide. There is also a rubric for how your child will receive extra credit for his/her project. Remember your child can receive up to 30 bonus points in science for the project.
Projects for the FMIC Science Fair can be brought to school on Wednesday, February 21st, from 2:00 – 4:30 PM. Please bring all projects to the cafeteria. All projects will need to be in a place by 8:30 AM Thursday, Thursday, February 22nd. The display area will then be closed to the public so that judging may take place.
Do not put your name on the front of your project. You may write your name, grade, and homeroom teacher in small print on the back of your project and cover with a piece of paper. The names will be covered during judging.
Judging will take place at 9 AM, Thursday, February 22. First, Second, and Third place, awards will be give in each grade level. There will be an “Overall Winner” award given to the project which the judges feel is the best out of all other projects submitted.
