Congratulations on deciding to encourage and facilitate the completion of Science Research Projects for your students. While deciding to incorporate Science Research Projects into your classroom can be a daunting task, the dividends for your students make the experience extremely worthwhile. The resources and information on this page are meant to help you hold a local science fair, aid your students in their research, and send them to District competition.
Teacher Handbook-please download and read this document. It includes all the information you will need to guide your students' participation in District 13 Science Day.
Also, it is vitally important that you help your students fill-out the required paperwork:
Each teacher sending students to District Science Day will be asked to evaluate each submission and make sure all appropriate forms are filled out, and filled out correctly. Use the following checklist to help you do this:
All teachers are asked to mail the completed forms for each student they are sending to District Science Day, as well as the $25 registration fee for each student by March 1, 2013. Each packet of forms should have the completed Required Forms Checklist, signed by you, on the top. Mail forms to:
District 13 Science Day

Teachers are also asked to help solicit judges and one volunteer for District Science Day. For every 3 projects you are sending to District Science Day, you must supply 1 judge. Each school must also supply 1 volunteer. This can be a parent of a student participating. Ask your judges and volunteers to please register online by March 8, 2013, and indicate, in the appropriate box, that they are representing your school.
