Use the information on this page to make sure your project is ready for the District 13 Science Fair. The first thing you should do is check out the District 13 Student Handbook (link on the right under "Important Links" section), a collection of resources compiled for all District 13 participants and their parents.
Science Research Projects can seem a little overwhelming at first. The best thing you can do is have a clear vision of your project and a well-developed timeline to help you manage your work.
Steps for Completing a Science Research Project
Please view the resources on this page and accompanying pages with your child. A Science Research Project is a major undertaking and can quickly become overwhelming to children. Help your child see the value in completing a Science Research Project by being an active participant in the process. Remember, though, that your child will be participating in the judging process and during that process it becomes readily apparent if a project has been completed by the child or the child's parents.
During judging, parents and families are not permitted in Bracy Hall. You may provide your own entertainment in the Alliance area. Students will be released for lunch, at which time you can reconnect with them. You are welcome to join participants for lunch in the Mount Union Dining Hall. Students receive a complimentary ticket and you may purchase a ticket at the door.
Parents and families are welcomed and encouraged to attend the Awards Ceremony. Cameras and video recording are permitted as well!
